It can’t be unexpected since it quit by command: either cmnd-Q or via the menu item. I suspect it is something to do with syncing via CloudKit (whatever) but even if I wait some time after working with DT to allow time for syncing to take place I still get the error msg.
Could someone tell me where the problem lies? There really should be some visual indication that syncing is taking place.

There is. If the databases aren’t synced yet you’ll see a black dot next to the database name in the sidebar to show that it’s not synced. When the sync is occurring, you’ll see a progress bar along the bottom of the sidebar just above the menu buttons showing you what’s syncing (it shows the file name and a blue bar with progress - well it’s blue for me, but I change my Mac settings a lot so I don’t know if that’s the default colour). If the sync is quick and you’re not looking at the screen at the right moment, you probably won’t see the progress bar. I tend to only notice it when I’m in DT and making a lot of file changes.
Thank you for the helpful replies. I see there is some visual reference to syncing which is good but as you say it is easily missed.
I think part of the problem may lie in how/when DT & CloudSync making contact. I can’t find any stated fixed time interval between syncs, but it doesn’t appear to be a continuous process, rather it appears to take place at set intervals. If I quit and DT Sync happen to coincide then it produces the error msg.
