Sorry I missed this. I was assuming you were using dvi.
Does some of the chapters are in files with names with accented =20
characters? (this could be a problem).
It is very strange that syncronization works only if the hyperref =20

Another thing to try is to include only the current chapter in the =20
compilation to see if it is a problem related to the size of the pdf.
There should be some way to reproduce the bug without sending me the =20
PDF and .pdfsync file, otherwise there is not much I can do to track =20
down the problem. E.g. try to write a fake tex file, with =20
approximately the same size and structure (by copying some fake text =20
over and over), and then see if sync is still working.

best,
