Good question. Accented characters are generally not really recommended,
but OTOH, if it worked before, it should still work (and it does on my
Linux machine).
To see if it's a problem with your compiling procedure, I suggest the
following steps:

1) try with the official build at
https://code.google.com/p/texworks/downloads/list (r998 ATM)

2) in case (1) does not work: SyncTeX has last been updated in r943. Try
checking out a version of Tw before that (e.g., svn update -r942 should
work) and build that. If that works, it may be a problem in the new
SyncTeX version.

Cleaning shouldn't be relevant here, but to be sure I suggest to clean
the Tw sources and rebuild them from scratch.
