How did you come to the conclusion that the --synctex=1 option is not necessary if you want to sync between pdf and source? If I run pdflatex on a file without that option set no .synctex.gz file is created. It may be that TeXShop then resorts to a regular search which is not as accurate as one using synctex.

Good Luck,
