Aren't spaces in the source file name a problem? I'am surprised LaTeX at all can process your file. Or are you using plain TeX?

There are TeX implementations on the Mac that can process a plain TeX file with spaces in its name, but I thought with LaTeX that was inherently impossible (because of all the ancillary files -- .aux files etc -- that LaTeX needs to generate and read).

I wouldn't be surprised that SyncTeX doesn't like spaces either.
