Wild guess on my part, and apparently not a good one.

I suppose the first thing to do is to turn off Spider Oak's autosync and
see if that makes the problem
go away.

All of this seems to use QFileSystemWatcher in the background, so we are
beholden to whatever it
thinks counts as a file change. A momentary renaming or whatever seems
as if it could trigger that,
from what I can tell, and that kind of thing might well happen during
syncing. I wonder if even the
locking and unlocking that has caused other problems might trigger it?
