I'm not sure, but I think there might be a bug in pdfsync. Especially  
in its handling of paragraphs. It was covered somewhere in december  
2004, but not resolved. I had forgotten about it.

I think I do know where the problem lies: the redefinition of \@@par.  
Basically, one can patch \@@par as much as one wants, but since \par  
is \let to \@@par (by \@par), patches done by \def (or \edef) will  
not be used...

So one possibility would be to add \@par right after \gdef\@@par 
{\PDFSYNC at par\@PDFSYNC} in pdfsync.sty (line 135 of the v0.6 file).

This said, there does not seem to be any way of reversing this  
patching of \@@par (something in the line of a \let\@@par\PDFSYNC at par  
when one wants to revert to the state before using pdfsync). In the  
same chain of ideas, the patching of \everymath, \everyhbox, erases  
anything that was in these token lists before. Why not have something  


when patching \everymath? (sorry for the \expandafters, but they seem  

Have fun!
