Jonathan, fantastic! It works! Thank you. I also typeset an
`ordinary' LaTeX file and and SyncTeX did kick in and generated the
.synctex.gz file. So I can confirm that the scope of the \synctex=0
command is just the document in which it is issued.

I would recommend this method to anyone who wants to use SyncTeX and
still retain  synchronicity in Beamer documents.
