Unfortunately it is Applescript which, all too often, seems to change syntax. That usually only happens with major OS updates, e.g., OS X 10.8->10.9, but now I'm seeing a problem with my update from OS X 10.9.2->10.9.3. I get a spinning wheel when I execute it and occasionally an error about not finding .tex.

Actually had to add .gz* to the end of synctex in the list! If you abort you get a .synctex.gx(busy) extension and rm hates the (! :-)
This works amazingly well!
