Sometimes when Skim.app updates, Textmate will tell it to open a pdf after you compile, but the operating system will show that dialog which says “Skim.app is an application downloaded from the internet, are you sure you want to run it?”.  But this dialog comes up in the background and skim seems to hang, and the document never appears.

I'm only able to reproduce the first time I typeset + view a document after installing a new version of Skim and _only_ if the new version hasn't bee previously opened.  Even if you launch and close Skim.app after installing a new version, you still experience the stall?
