Working on a project from 2 machines?

I have a Rails project that I store on a DropBox folder, so that I can access it from my Mac at home, and from my Ubuntu machine at work.  Both machines are running RubyMine, and I edit all the various files on each machine from day to day. It all seems to work fine this way, but there is something funny that is happening in the workspace.xml, as each machine seems to fight with the other to change the settings within this file to its own environment.

What can I do to allow a project to live up on DropBox, jet prevent them from fighting over this workspace.xml file?

May be better way is to use some real version control system? E.g. git is quite popular in Ruby community and free, see https://github.com/.
workspace.xml contains some os and machine specific settings and in general shouldn't be shared among developers/machines. I don't think that Dropbox supports "ignored" files.

Or you may create a svn repo in DropBox folder and commit/update you working copy from this repo. With version control system you will get full changes history and many other useful features =)
