Before 1.0 (or 1.0.1?) I only used to see the dreaded "conflict" dialog when I forgot that I'd been working offline with my Android phone and forgotten to uncheck the "Manually sync" pref.

However lately I've noticed more and more of these:

I believe that they are false positives because when I click outside of the dialog (ie: "cancel" instead of "upload" or "download") then I still see the very latest change on my phone that I had made only moments before on my laptop.

Dropbox.app 1.4.12 on the MacBookPro running 10.7.4
Todo.txt touch 1.0.1 on the Galaxy Nexus running Android 4.1.1

I see reports of this in the app's reviews as well, but I can't reliably reproduce the problem. Does it happen all the time? If not, what the exact conditions when it does? If I can reliably reproduce, then we can fix.

I see if often when I switch networks. Just now I came back from the store and right away it had conflicts.

(iOS 6.1 wifi on fiber --> 3G network -> back on wifi on fiber (knowing that this for the android version))

I can confirm this. Running master, I'm always connected through either Wifi or cellular. Nearly every time I start the app I get the 'file conflict' message.

What can I do to help you debugging this? Any logs I can provide?

Here's more info on how to provide some informational logging:

Hmm, now that I've enabled the logcat I can't seem to trigger the conflict situation any more :-( Don't know if this was a transient when I began using the app or if something else triggered the error. I'll report back when it happens again.
