One quick comment, adding the dropbox.py script to be run from bash_profile (or similar .rc files) is not a good idea, those configuration files are sourced only when the shell is started. In a typical scenario you would want dropbox to start when the user logs in and not when the user opens the shell (via a terminal emulator etc). 

Ideally we should be putting the startup script in one of the following locations (based on the sesion manager being gnome, kde or others)  : 

/usr/share/gnome/autostart/
/usr/share/autostart/
/etc/xdg/autostart/ or ~/.config/autostart/

And adding a shebang line to the python script (#! /bin/env python) and making it executable (chmod +x ) should allow the script to be run without having to explicitly call the python interpreter.

If this works in reality at scale, we have a reason to cheer :| "solar energy technology that relies on incredibly small nanosized antenna arrays that are theoretically capable of harvesting more than 70 percent of the sun’s electromagnetic radiation and simultaneously converting it into usable electric power"
