I'm not sure I know everything that is going on, but by creating a new 
board, schematic accepted the new board as the target PCB. Closing it did 
not change that. When the blank file was deleted, Schematic would then look 
for a different PCB to update, and presumably would find it.

I'm fairly new with the synchronizer; I thought I remembered a place where 
you can set the target PCB, but I could not find it. I think it is only set 
once; if it has been set previously, it remains at that setting and the 
only way, apparently, to change it is to get the current PCB out of the 
way. As I recall, if there is more than one possible PCB, one will be 
prompted to choose which one is intended.
