​I routinely work on tex projects in my Dropbox file area. I mean every
day, all the time.  I've never noticed a problem with Dropbox mirroring my
ephemeral files, even the synctex one.  I have moderately fast wifi at home
and fast ethernet at work; it might be different if the bandwidth was low
and slow.  The little dropbox icon shows that my files are updated more or
less instantly.  I honestly have never noticed any overhead.
