[tex-live] Synctex problem

Dear All,

I've recently upgraded my system to TexLive 2011 and I noticed that 
synchronisation between source and PDF (and backwards) in TexWorks 
misses a couple of lines. I reported the issue to TexWorks directly 
(includes an example screenshot):


but it seem to be an upstream problem with Synctex. Namely, when I use a 
Synctex files generated by a previous version TexLive 2010 with new 
TexWorks the synchronisation works correctly. I've also fount that the 
offsets in the files are wrong, namely:

X Offset:0
Y Offset:0

whereas, the old, correctly working file has:

X Offset:4736287
Y Offset:4736287

It'd make sense, because synchronisation works in general, it just 
misses the lines by some offset. I see the same problem on all platforms.

Thank you for the help in advance.

Best wishes,
