Strangeness with Git and Dropbox


Well having the two operate together leaves to some strange conflicts as you might expect. Also I got this strange message having to do with an Icon file which has a carriage return in it. That is a Ctrl-M that really confused Git. But explains that Apple or Dropbox throws an icon file in which git can't read with a illegal character for it in the file name. 
The solution is to delete all these icon files with the magic

find . -name "Icon*" -delete
