I thought I would post my solution to this problem as I couldn't find this
particular answer anywhere.  The problem was not with TeXShop but with
corrupted permissions on my .Trash file.  As a result every time I tried to
move anything to trash MacOS would say it need to be deleted immediately and
I had to click OK to do that. I guess TeXShop was somehow getting this
behinds the scene and not being able to deal with it.  Which is  fine of
course. Not sure I would want a programme overriding a dialogue like that. 

The solution I found seems to be to delete the .Trash and log in and out at
which point a new one with correct permissions is created.  I did that in
Terminal.  Probably better people look this up themselves than take my
amateur advice on how to use the remove command with Terminal.
