I had a similar problem a while back in antiX, which is debian-wheezy based. I wrote a procedure for fixing the broken nautilus-dropbox installation and installing the correct dropbox deb. http://antix.freeforums.org/post38004.html#p38004

The long and short is that the nautilus-dropbox package in the debian wheezy repos is broken as dropbox changed the download location of the daemons.
