Monte's nailed it as usual. POBKAC - no bug report to file... Thanks Monte!

I have a vague memory that LC has introduced a way to make incremental changes 
to the plist, rather than just overriding the generated one completely - but I 
can't find any reference to this anywhere. Did I imagine it?

Many thanks,

I believe that I also had it working under 8.0.x, before the advent of the inclusions tab in the standalone builder (but can't now be certain - I've decided to stay on the bleeding edge for anything later than 7, and recently purged all my intermediate 8 versions. I can check if it becomes relevant.).

The call to mergDropboxSetup (in openStack) returns empty, as I'd hope; a call to mergDropboxIsLinked correctly returns false; however, a call afterwards to mergDropboxLink simply returns empty, where I'd expect it to throw up a Dropbox authorisation request.
