I have here only the latest SVN-co of the LaTeX-Bundle and therefore  
I can only say what the settings are for those which are working for me:

In the LaTeX-Preferences (it's a new part of the menu of the bundle)  
I have set:
Default-engine: pdflatex
and Viewing in Skim, Show PDF automatically

In the Skim-preferences I have set under sync:
Check for file changes
Preset: TextMate

a cmd-shift-click in Skim brings me to Textmate
Show in PDFViewer(Skim) ctrl+alt+cmd+o brings me to the corresponding  
part in the file in Skim (or rendering the file)

In the tex-file itself I'm using of course \usepackage{pdfsync}

I hope that helps.
