Interesting, just tested with TS 2.6 on linux. Works there too.

Would you mind doing us all a favor, and figuring out how this works and add it 
to Emacs, preferably Emacs + Evince as that is the compo I use.

Cannot have others having features not present in Emacs :-)

Might be an idea to check what actually is in the synctex file. And what 
exactly is getting back from the previewer (I've never sat down and looked at

I also did the same test and can't understand how TeXstudio can
achieve that level of precision.

I don't have a clue, as far as I know SyncTeX only potentially
supports column numbers, but actually always return a
not-really-useful number, as you pointed out.
