Got you.  That is not "Dropbox" but "nautilus-dropbox" which is a 
totally different package, and is having SERIOUS problems in 12.04 with 
dpenedancies.  It depends on Dropbox but does not see it so it does not 
update when Dropbox does...  I am running without it right now and 
taking an extra step from Home to open it.  Here is when hapens when I 
try and install it every so often to see if it ever got patched...
