By default the SyncTeX option falls back to the Search when synctex  
fails. You can force TeXShop to only use synctex. Looking under Help,  
searching for ``hidden preference items'' and going to the bottom of  
the page I get

``TeXShop now supports SyncTeX. See the synchronization section in  
Advanced Help for details. If synctex fails, TeXShop falls back on the  
Search synchronization method. For users who would like to experiment  
with synctex by itself, there is a hidden preference to turn off this  
fallback behavior:
defaults write TeXShop SyncTeXOnly YES
By default, this preference has the value NO.''

Good Luck,
