I also use TeXshop and have for several years. I don't use quite your
approach, preferring to manually trigger the typeset when I'm between
editing sessions or just want to check my code. I frequently see the
"jumping in preview" case you cite, but noticed if I simply re-typeset
the document I am back where I should be in the preview pane. I think
this is associated with pdflatex moving a float around. A second
typeset fixes the problem.
At least it does on my systems.
