My nesting isn't very deep but clicking on the pdf (almost) always opens 
(under 10.3.9) the source (\input'ed) file. I say almost because on a 
couple of occasions it did open the root file. But since I am also 
getting some new, but not lethal, behaviours, I thought I would just 
ride it out until I upgrade to 10.4. Of course, these days, I am not 
sure what to do in the latter respect.
