I am running TeXShop 1.43 on 10.3.9.

    The new pdfsync gives me the following error message
    ?! Incompatible glue units.
    \PDFSYNC at endbox->\ifnum\lastnodetype
                                         >\m at ne \egroup \unbox \z@\egrou
    1.176 \end{align*}

A zillion Return after that many instances of the message does produce a 
pdf but pdfsync seems a bit erratic in that it seems to get lost among 
the many chapter variants that Book circa 350 pages may or may not 
include. Moroever, I have just rearranged my whole filing system of 
these variants and I can't really say how the new pdfsync compares with 
the old pdfsync. Going back to old pdfsync, there is no more complaint 
about glue units.

Best regards
