I have a folder with files named ".hgignore" and ".hgignore.i" and a folder named ".hg", all of which are not being properly synchronized by Sharepoint Workspace using Shared Folder Synchronization.
For the file error details, I see:
"Filtered. A policy of your organization prevents this file from synchronizing. The file was not synchronized with other members."
For the folder error details, I see:
"Not Authorized. You do not have the required permission to synchronize this file. Other members in the workspace will not see your changes."
In the workspace properties-->Folder Info, I see files and file extensions excluded from synchronization listed as:

Firstly, make sure the user you used to do the synchronization has enough rights to the files and the folder. Maybe you can use the administrator and try again.
Secondly, did you set any special policy to the files? Please check them.
Lastly, here is an article about shared folder in SharePoint workspace:
Hope it is helpful!
Thanks, but I did check all that. No special policy, admin rights. Have a ticket into MSDN tech support - they say the standard policies for blocking files are only configurable with a Groove Server version (not in peer-to-peer only). Regardless, however, these files don't match the pre-set filters anyway.
