[R] Sweave, Texshop, and sync with included Rnw file

Hi,
I just updated R and patchDVI (from CRAN).
Now I can reverse search from the pdf to the included.Rnw.
However, I cannot forward search from the included to the pdf. Is this how it is expected to work?
Forward and inverse search work between main Rnw and pdf.

I am pasting below the code in the two files.

%%%%%%%%% Sweavetest.Rnw %%%%%%%%%%%%

\documentclass{article}

\begin{document}

\SweaveOpts{concordance=TRUE}

\title{an Sweave inclusion test}
\author{Michele}

\maketitle

This is an example for the inclusion of RNW files and forward-inverse search.

following is a chunk of sweave code:

<<>>=
n <- 5
for(i in 1:n){
print(i)
}
@

\section{text from an included file}
\SweaveInput{included.Rnw}

\end{document}

%%%%%%%%% Included.Rnw %%%%%%%%%%%%

% !Rnw root = Sweavetest.Rnw

this is some text included in an Rnw file

<<>>=
for(i in 1:3){
print('included')
}
