Well, I don't know if there is any connection but I also found that 
pdfsync is not working for me in certain cases. This typically occurs 
when typesetting a document consisting of various source documents. 
Typesetting the document with certain source documents open allows to 
pdfsync between the output and those open source documents (or in the 
preview --> source direction even without the source already being 
open). Opening another source doc through the menu (i.e. open or open 
recent) allows to navigate to and from that part of the source as well.

After closing that just opened source document and re-opening it with 
Matthew Hills' "Open Selection" applescript, pdfsync does not work for 
that part of the document anymore (for source --> preview navigation, 
the preview --> source navigation still works).

Closing that source document again and re-opening it again through the 
menu (or dragging the file on the TeXShop icon) restores the ability to 
pdfsync in both directions.

Is your problem also related to a multiple source documents project, 

Does anyone have any ideas as to why the above behaviour seems to occur?
