I wonder if the caching that needs to be done for the finder used to be done automatically at startup, but someone decided to eliminate that for faster startup times. I also found out that there is a more severe problem on those machines that have “Google Drive” installed which apparently is causing instability and crashes in the finder. For that, the only workaround is removing Google Drive.

There is a less drastic solution that worked for me under Mavericks. In the Google Drive preferences, uncheck the preference 'Show file sync status and right click menu'.
