Remove Icon? file which shows up in Dropbox in terminal

Have had Dropbox for years and these folks perpetually and needlessly overcomplicate things. I now see a Icon? 0-byte file in Dropbox root in terminal. This is needless and annoying! How do I get rid of it?

Hey @stormbytes, I'd be happy to help look into this with you. 

Could this item be your Dropbox cache?

Does it seem to be completely synced locally? You can tell because it'll have a green syncing icon with a white check-mark on it. 

If you could send me a screenshot, that would also be super helpful. 

Looking forward to hearing back from you!
