Avoid drop box file permission issues
Authored by: tubadood on Oct 17, '08 02:05:58AM

Although quite kludgy, if you wanted to avoid the superuser authentication issue while executing an applescript, you could write a folder action to attach to your dropbox that duplicates the file, thereby changing ownership to you (as you're doing manually now), then overwrites the original file with the copy.

Ick. Kludgy indeed, but it would work.
