Hmmm. Why do you use pdflatex first? I guess that the whole process  
work if you stick with simpdftex since the beginning. This is because  
simpdftex with the synctex option adorns the compiled latex file with  
the appropriate specials. Indeed, you get the right behaviour when you  
manually add synctex to the preamble of your latex file.
