Exactly the same here, in all points. Not with beamer slides, but with a large book (550 pp.) in normal LaTeX (class "memoir", with hyperref package). It is so erratical that, sometimes, it works well. With small documents it does not fail. With MacOS X 10.9.5.

It can fail when clicking on the same position where it did not fail before (without changing the source). I tried to find a minimal example that shows this behaviour but couldn't. When I threw out say half of the slides, it worked (although I didn't try to click everywhere, of course). Gradually adding slides to this subset until the misbehaviour appeared was possible (which is a too large example to submit here), but when I then isolated the slides that were added and typeset those alone, there was no problem.

I have not encountered problems with other source files that I tried. This is TL2015, updated with the latest possible packages, and the latest TeXShop 3.61, osx 10.10.5. This happens both on my laptop and desktop mac (running the same versions). A colleague who works with the same slides has no problems with SyncTex using MiKTeX/Texmaker on Windows.
