Exclude paths are lowercase aftter root Dropbox folder in "dropbox exclude list" output

Exclude paths are lowercase aftter root Dropbox folder in "dropbox exclude list" output

The output from the "dropbox exclude list" command isn't accurate. In the output path, the root Dropbox folder is properly capitalized, but the team folder under the root Dropbox directory is not capitalized even when it is in the local file system and the Dropbox web portal. Also, directories that should have capitalization under that team folder in the output path of the command aren't capitalized in the output. To clarify, the exclude directory list is working and excluding the directories that are specified, but the the output from the "dropbox exclude list" command with the Dropbox linux binary has the capitalization issues described. The actual directories in the local file system and Dropbox web portal are properly capitalized. This is annoying because when I want to copy the paths from the command output, I have to first change them to be properly capitalized before using them.

I don't want to screenshot for privacy reasons. Here is a recreation with sample text outputted after executing the command at root:

../home/user/Dropbox (Example name)/example name - team folder/folder name that is supposed to be capitlized

Notice how Dropbox (Example name) is capitlized and example name - team folder and folder name that is supposed to be capitlized isn't. The latter two are supposed to be capitlized and show it in the local filesystem and the Dropbox web portal.
