Files from unrelated folder moved automagically to newly created folder

Folder content (files) are moved (from source) to another folder (destination) without me doing it. The source folder is not even synced to my workstation, so i can not do that accidentally.

Steps to reproduce

  1. Create a new folder on the workstation.
  2. Wait until the new folder is synced to owncloud server.
  3. Wait for files (from another folder) to appear automagically in the new folder.

Expected behaviour

Files should stay where they are.

Actual behaviour
