Mark,
There appears to be something wrong with Skim.  I have tried the same
experiment as you and I do not get the required result.

I learned that when testing you have to make sure to delete the pdfsync file
that gets created or Skim will happily use that data file.  When I only have
the xxx.synctex.gz file I cannot get syncing to work in either direction.
