If you change a component in schematic to a component with more pins, then 
the syncronizer fails in the first pass.
It creates a marco for changing the footprint, then it tries to creat 
macros to connect nets to the additional pins (add node to net), but those 
pins are not existent on the pcb, because the footprint has not changed 
yet. So it fails to connect the nets to this new nodes.
I can't remember exactly, may it just claims not to be able to connect the 
node, but it does it, because the footprint is already changed when it 
executes the "add node" macros.

I hope I have expressed myself clearly, if not, well... my english is just 
not better than this.
