Sub_title: It worked for months in Precise 5.7.1, now it doesn't.
 

RUNNING PRECISE PUPPY 5.7.1. Downloaded dropbox pet and installed OK. Have been using without problems for some months. However suddenly I have had a permissions error message.

The message
"pid: 3338
ppid: 3319

user_info: ('root', 'x', 0, 0, 'root', '/root', '/bin/sh')
effective_user_info: ('root', 'x', 0, 0, 'root', '/root', '/bin/sh')
euid: 0
gid: 0
egid: 0

Traceback (most recent call last):
File "core/authenticate.py", line 635, in authentication_thread
File "core/unlink_cookie.py", line 117, in write_unlink_cookie
Exception: Couldn't write unlink cookie..."

Have checked the Dropbox end and the laptop is listed as having permissions.

Have tried reloading the dropbox PET , but this has not solved the problem.
Help appreciated.

this would probably get better attention in one of the first three forum threads (beginners help, users, howto) or possibly network or browsers and internet.
