Dropbox prompts for permission (solved)

If been running Dropbox in Waldorf for a long time (installed with the welcome script).

Recently it has started giving me this prompt after each reboot that looks like the gksudo prompt and reads:

Dropbox needs your permission to save changes to your computer.

Type your Linux password to allow Linux to make changes.

Why has it begun prompting me this and how do I make it stop?

Thanks

I don't know why it started doing that, but it looks similar to this issue reported on the Dropbox forums (they're using the cli client, but same error). On the Dropbox help page they suggest moving your existing Dropbox config out of the way and re-linking the account.
