This must be a bug in TeXShop. Using TeXShop for your example, augmented my \listfiles, I also cannot see the output of \currfileabspath and \currfileabsdir. But what I see instead is a warning from currfile: no fls file found! OK, I did not use pdflatexmk. So my next try was with the

	% !TEX TS-program = pdflatexmk

line. Same result. Quitting TeXShop. Launching it again, loading the test file from the list of previously used files, TeXing again. Still your result. Looking into the directory with the test file I see only the completely useless synctex.gz file…

Then I created a Record.engine file, with permissions to execute, in ~/Library/TeXShop/Engines and changed the

	% !TEX TS-program = pdflatexmk


	% !TEX TS-program = Record

Neither my engine is listed nor the Record engine is used automatically. (For the record: I quit TeXShop, launched it again, and loaded the test file from the list of previously used files. So TeXShop, version 2.47, Mac OS X 10.6.8, Snow Leopard, should have found my new engine.)

So my recommendation is: don't use TeXShop and currfile in combination!

Anyway, please check your console output and search for the warning! In my case it looks like this:

	(/usr/local/texlive/2012/texmf-dist/tex/latex/filehook/filehook.sty) (/usr/local/texlive/2012/texmf-dist/tex/latex/currfile/currfile-abspath.sty)
	Package currfile-abspath Warning: The required recorder file (.fls) was not found.
	(currfile-abspath)                Please compile with the '-recorder' option.
	(currfile-abspath)                Note that MikTeX requires two compiler runs.
	(currfile-abspath)                Occurred on input line 278.
