Strange behavior of filename display during rename

I just installed TotalFinder today. Yay! Works & looks great.
But this evening when I clicked on a filename to edit it, the location of the filename jumped down 5 1/2 lines, as:

A little later, the behavior changed, and now it just blanks the line below it:

Immediately after taking the screenshot the file listing changed to normal:

This strange behavior only occurs in some directories.
Any clues about what’s going on? A bug (seemingly) or a feature?
Thanks in advance for any replies!

I believe I have observed something similar, except:
Shows old filename when pressing ENTER key to rename, especially when reducing the filename. It seems to show the old filename and it appears ‘like’ a shadow.
I’m not sure if this is Yosemite or TotalFinder. But I noticed that it no longer does it with version 1.6.14 that I just installed 10 minutes ago.

I’m using version 1.6.12 with Mavericks. Not interested in upgrading to Yosemite, tired of having my fast machines made slow.
