Technically dropbox isn't sharing like nfs,cifs,etc.....dropbox is syncing, so 
if the TS syncs the sqlite db's from/with dropbox it should be ok I guess, 
since you're accessing the db locally. Changing the database on multiple 
dropbox clients is another story (and the digikam4.db does already change on 
And maybe I am totally wrong with this ;)
