I don't know the answer right off for this but I would try it and see
hat happens. If it breaks KDE, which I doubt, it is trivial to undo. I
would, however, offer a different solution. I suggest that the linking
be done in the other direction. Let the .kde directory be the "real"
directory and let the Dropbox/Directory be the link. (ie. ln -s ~/.kde
~/Drobox/wife.kde). This is how I put directories in my dropbox folder
and it works like a charm.
Out of simple curiosity, though, why you would want that directory
