Hello,

There was a discussion on this list about some incompatibility
between pdfsync and other packages.
Here is one more minimal example with Paul Taylor's diagrams package:

===================
\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{diagrams}
\usepackage{pdfsync}
\begin{document}
\noindent monomorphism:
\begin{diagram}E&\pile{\rTo^v\\
\rTo_w}&F&\rTo^u&G
\end{diagram}
epimorphism:
\begin{diagram}E&\rTo^u&F&\pile{\rTo^v\\
\rTo_w}&G
\end{diagram}
end...
\end{document}
===================

Try it with and without using pdfsync.
(I'm using pdfsync 2007/01/15 v1.0)
Sorry if this is a known problem...

Here is part of the log:
===================================================================
< Paul Taylor's commutative diagrams - version 3.91, August 2006 >
| >>>>>>>> POSTSCRIPT MODE (DVIPS) IS NOW THE DEFAULT <<<<<<<<<<<<|
|(DVI mode has not been supported since 1992 and produces inferior|
|results which are completely unsuitable for publication. However,|
|if you really still need it, you can still get it by loading the |
|package using \usepackage[UglyObsolete]{diagrams}'' instead. ) |
===================================================================)
