[OS X TeX] Multiple synctex.gz files

Here's a sample of what I've been calling "multiple synctex files."

They are all for the same .tex document (titled "irrationalNumbers"), which is a relatively plain-vanilla beamer class document.

In this example, the files listed below appear in the same folder along with all the aux files, the .tex file, and the output .pdf file.

irrationalNumbers.synctex (from Rauls-macbook-pro - 3).gz
irrationalNumbers.synctex (from Rauls-macbook-pro).gz

This example lists two extra synctex files each with the tag "(from Rauls-macbook-pro)"; the latter is the name of my MacBook Pro as you might guess. The files names are exactly as they appear on the list of aux files. [I mention this to avoid people thinking that I added the parenthetical identifier "(from ...)" for the purpose of this discussion.] Although I show only two "extra" files here, I've had as many as six. They appear to be inoffensive: deleting them has no effect on typesetting or editing with TS 3.18.

I'm puzzled by the fact that these files appear at all because that had not been the case previously.
