Thanks for re-replying with the clarification: Yes, you are right, esp 
when the "\synctex=1" is in the preamble, the things work smoothly. 
However, strangely, in some inconsistent manner, now and 
then the automatic update of the pdf in skim doesn't happen and I need to 
hit Revert. I haven't managed yet to pinpoint what circumstances cause 
that. This has been happening not only with simpdftex, but with 
pdflatex too.
