Ignore pattern .DS_Store leads to out of sync

I am running the latest version of Syncthing on my TrueNAS Scale server. There are two MacOS systems that I’d like to sync via the TrueNAS server. Everything works fine as long as I do not add .DS_Store to the ignore pattern, then I run straight into a nasty out of sync error. I’ve seen some older posts about this kind of problem, it seems that this issue hasn’t been solved yet. I would be interested to know if anyone has found out why this happens. And if so, can we expect a fix in the near future?

If the .DS_Store files are not allowed to be deleted, it can cause problems when deleting directories that have orphans left behind.

Try this pattern in your .stignore:
