Synchronization is temperamental and problems are not always  
reproducible. A couple comments:

1. The yellow mark in the source (and a red circle in the pdf) come  
from texshop's own sync engine (Pref>Misc>Synch Method>"Search".  
pdfsync does not place highlights on either source or pdf (in the  
source it selects the entire paragraph that corresponds to the  
selected pdf point). For best results choose both synchronization  
methods in TS's preferences.

2. On a long document (145 pages) with 10 \include'd files, my  
synchronization works --but there can be blind spots occasionally.  
I'm using memoir but I doubt this makes any difference.
