Perhaps you can provide more data as to back up what you mean by “analysing the TexShop shows it”. The author of TexShop says it doesn’t use it, so I would be interested in learning how you deduce that it does.

And, of course: the problem is not limited to Macbooks and IMacs. The time my other computer died PC users have had same problems with dying graphic cards very often, when running OpenGL applications.

At least using preview solves the problem with texmaker's viewer and printing.
