I suspect this to be a limitation imposed by the subscribed Dropbox plan. The pricing suggests you have to upgrade to a Professional plan to allow sharing files with a password.

This is also restricted in the web interface which says

Upgrade to Dropbox Professional to enable all link settings.

when attempting to edit a shared link.

@dkocher Any chance to detect the type of an account and disable the option for non-Professional plans?
