Dropbox Folder Icon Replacement Script...

Is there any way someone could write a simple terminal script that launched on boot up that continually replaces the dropbox folder icon with the actual logo? I keep having to manually navigate to the app, "show package contents... etc." to replace every few days.

I assume the app is pinging their servers and replacing it?

I keep one icon on my desktop for quick access to by drop box folder. It is a custom icon I made and I just pasted it into the info window for the folder. It never changes. This icon is an alias so I don't know if that has anything to do with why it never changes.

It never changes? You are replacing dropbox correct? For some reason I have 3 macs and they are all changing on my desktop :/

Anybody else having this issue?
