I noticed the following reproducible breakdown of synchronization in  
TS with both pdfsync and "search" turned on:

I have a root file with input commands of the form:  \input{../ 
problem-dbase/prob_subfolder/myfile.tex}. If the names of the folders  
involved contain no spaces, as in this example, synchronization works  
as expected. If use a folder with a space in its name, for example,  
\input{../"problem dbase"/prob_subfolder/myfile.tex}, synchronization  
from pdf to source appears to be completely broken. Removing the  
space from the folder's name (and the quotes) returns behavior to  

TeXShop: Version 2.10beta2 (237)
pdfsync: 1.0beta
