[OS X TeX] TS synchronization with \input

I run to the following  problem with pdf-to-source synchronization  
while using nested \input files:

I use a master file to \input a large number of files that reside in  
parallel folders in paths of the form ../problems/prob_i relative to  
the root file (with i=1, ...).  I often \input only some of these  
files in my root file. I noticed that when I command-click on certain  
spots of  the pdf output, the source file that pops opens is a file  
that is not \input'ed in my root file! This behavior is apparently  
due to TeXShop's synchronization (and not to pdfsync)  because the  
sync point in the source file is highlighted in bright yellow color.

It appears that TeXShop's synchronization works by looking for  
matching strings in ALL *.tex files that reside in ../problems/,  
whether these files are actually loaded by the root file or not. If  
that's the case, it should be possible to add a check in the program  
to skip files that are not \input'ed.
