Windows: sync public folder & multiple users logged in

I use to share a “public” on all machines (on windows C:\Users\Public\sync). This works fine between machines. But what happens if I have 2 useres logged in on one machine running syncthing both on this shared folder? What would be a lean way to accomplish that? I thought about having syncthing run as a service and moving all public stuff to this account.

I think this should behave well without any special setup, however the following is not verified: The first folder to scan and thus detect a change will tell all other instances of syncthing about this change. These instances on the same machine will detect that their file is identical with the one announced so they will just update their index without modifying the file.
