Yes. If I get this correctly, and you're only editing the .tex file, you
only change the line endings in there. This doesn't affect SyncTeX at
all. What Duncan was doing was editing the .synctex file, and there the
line ending characters matter.

Hm, I think it was there all the time. Almost, anyway. A quick search
through `svn log` shows:

r221 | jonathan at jfkew.plus.com | 2008-10-25 19:21:17 +0200 (Sam, 25. Okt

added contextual menu items for synctex
