Oops, I forgot to upload the very most recent version. If your copy of  
the shell script does not have a "function previewUpdate" at the start  
of it, you have the old version, and Skim will not be instructed to  
update. If you already had that version, I need more information to  
diagnose the problem.

With the new copy it should act the same.
