I've set syncdocs to convert files to Google Docs format which works great for Office files but not PDF files... Google converts them to Docs which doesn't work with PDF files that are image based. Is it possible to exclude PDF files from converting to Docs format?

This is new behavior from the Google server. Pdfs should stay as they are, despite conversion settings.
We have bypassed this bug in the latest beta, which you can download from here:
Pdf file will not convert to Google Docs, unless the setting "ForcePDFToDoc" is set to true in the appsettings.xml file.
Thanks to both. ;)
I also noticed that if you upload in Google Drive from Firefox with "Convert uploaded files to google docs editor format" option ON, the extension of the original files are not kept (contrarily if you upload them from syndocs with the option to convert to Office file ON).
Example: test.txt becomes "test" in a google doc format.
Same thing for ".htm"
