STOP PRESS! 

In the last 5 mins (just after I had posted the above). The folders and files have miraculously updated without any apparent syncing taking place! 

It seems to be working. 

I shall harvest the commans used in case I need them in the future. Meanwhile, thank you all very much for your patience and help.

Regards from a locked-down SW France.

Thank you, I had the exact same problem, and it seems the limit of "watched" files was ridiculously small. I have increased it to 500000 (instead of "just" 100000), just in case (I already have almost 300000 files in my Dropbox!)

Are you syncing to an external drive? The very basic interface for Dropbox
for Linux does not show my external drives

No, I don't use it with external drives. I keep a backup of only the most important files on my external drive, leaving the bulk of the storing to Dropbox and the cloud...
