Today, all seems to be working OK with cocoAspell and TeXShop: I do now see “English (United States) [w_accents] as a choice in both the TeXShop Preferences > Source pane and in the Show Spelling & Grammar (which was not the case yesterday), and misspelled words_are_ being flagged as I type them.

This is after a fresh boot. Mysterious to me as to why this did not work yesterday.
