Hmmm... If I only open the pdf file and Ctl-Click and then choose Sync (should be the same as Cmd-Click alone I'd guess) nothing happens; i.e., the source doesn't open. If I have both the source and the pdf open and I do that it goes to the correct spot in the Source. Of course this can only happen if the .synctex.gz file is also present. In any case I'm not understanding what the procedure to recreate this problem.

Good Luck,
