Summary: Input lines spread across synctex file in MiKTeX-pdfTeX 2.9.3962 (1.40.11) 
Category: synctex
Group: None
Resolution: None

Initial Comment:
I am using MiKTeX-pdfTeX 2.9.3962 (1.40.11). On one of my larger documents, it generates a synctex file in which the "Input:" lines are spread across the file, i.e., the "Input:" lines do not form a contiguous block at the beginning of the synctex file before the "Content:" line. This breaks the synctex parser in both SumatraPDF and TeXworks.

Currently I use latexmk to fix the synctex file automatically after each build. The only thing needed is to move all the "Input:" lines to the front.

Attached is a minimal example that yields a synctex file with an "Input:" line after the "Content:" line. I compiled it with:

pdflatex -synctex=1 main
