In this case, is PDF synchronization not help enough? Because anyway,  
one has to make a pass looking for bad breaks, and would usually be  
able to spot all but the minutest of overfull hboxes. But I agree  
that you wouldn't be able to get the exact spot in the source, since  
most of the overfull hboxes occur in the mathematics. You can go to  
the vicinity of the crime in the source, though. Don't know if you'd  
find it helpful enough.
