I actually hadn't used the archive command in quite a while, so not sure
when the behavior in my situation changed. It does make sense though that
it might have something to do with the file being stored in a dropbox


(setq org-archive-subtree-save-file-p nil)

in the init file fixes it.

Thanks Kyle!
