I also use TeXshop and have for several years. I don't use quite your  
approach, preferring to manually trigger the typeset when I'm between  
editing sessions or just want to check my code. I frequently see the  
"jumping in preview" case you cite, but noticed if I simply re-typeset  
the document I am back where I should be in the preview pane. I think  
this is associated with pdflatex moving a float around. A second  
typeset fixes the problem.

At least it does on my systems.
