It doesn't seem to be working for me, but this may be a Skim problem.
I have the following document called untitled.tex:

------------------------
\documentclass{article}
\begin{document}
test
\newpage
test
\end{document}
------------------------

I used xelatex (from svn) with synctex enabled to create a pdf and
synctex.gz files. I open the pdf file in Skim. The following commands
should then go to page 1 and page 2 (if I understand the script
correctly), but they don't:

/Applications/Skim.app/Contents/Resources/displayline 3 untitled.pdf
untitled.tex
/Applications/Skim.app/Contents/Resources/displayline 5 untitled.pdf
untitled.tex
