Have you tried to run the experiment I mention in my previous message? Or did you set the links on the various machines you sync before turning Dropbox syncing on?

I tried this: on machine A symlink ~/path/to/file.pdf to your Dropbox, so that ~/Dropbox/file.pdf is really a symlink to ~/path/to/file.pdf. Edit or change, maybe check your Dropbox through a browser, everything will look OK, including the symlink. Now login machine B: ~/Dropbox/file.pdf is an actual  PDF file. Change that one (e.g. load it in Preview, rotate, annotate, whatever) and let it sync. Go back to machine A. You’ll find that ~/Dropbox/file.pdf is now an actual PDF file, no?
