I noticed something similar since about one or two years. Using
SumatraPDF on Windows (together with Sublime or Notepad++) a sync from
the editor to SumatraPDF results in the right higlighted section.
However a sync the other way 'round is slightly off. It's more off the
farther down I'm in the document.
