Personally I find the automatic syncing a bit impractical. I feel more comfortable if I decide myself when to sync.

If sync doesn't work, it's because you don't let things sync before you close, and it's because you don't close before changing device.
Syncing has been described numerous times in here and there is a detailed explanation on the support page. You have a copy on each device AND on the dropbox server. Everything must be given time to copy to/from each device and the dropbox server. If you do, everything works just fine.

Should the Mac version _need_ to know that the project has been changed elsewhere, and not yet synced? Let's say I have a project on my iPad, iPhone, and Mac 1 but not iPad 2 and not Mac 2. Shouldn't there be bits for each of those devices (including the unused, if they are visible to Scrivener), indicating whether the project is "checked out" (in programmer parlance)? If the software cannot reach deterministic tracking on its own (and that does appear to be the problem now), shouldn't it take steps to get there?

The nature of iOS is that the project is *always* checked out, whenever the iOS app is open. The nature of Scrivener is that simply opening the project can change the project "state," and therefore cause a sync-able change to the project file.
How is the project supposed to set an "open and edited" bit without syncing? That is, if there is no communication between the device and the Dropbox server (because if there were it would sync), how is the Dropbox server supposed to receive this information?
