TeXShop.app should appear there with one or more checked items under it (e.g., System Events.app and/or Finder). Does TeXShop.app appear there? If so, are there items under it that have check boxes? If so, are they checked?

Script Menu? Each application that allows scripting should ask the first time a script using Finder or System Events to allow it's use. I've got quite a few applications with check boxes below them, on the list on my system.

First, I believe it is buggy; hence not getting asked about it. Second, at least at this time, there doesn't seem to be a way to reset it except to completely delete the database and have to reconstruct it one app at a time.

Good Luck,
