TotalFinder many issues (Mavericks)

I do love TotalFinder, but can no longer use it.
version 1.17.10

I get the SBBOD WAY too much.

Opening folders (on a NAS or even local) it can take up to 5 minutes to populate.

Relaunching Finder rarely works. It shuts down Finder, but never restarts. Even clicking Finder on the Dock doesn’t complete it. Its shows as running but Desktop never populates nor can I open a Finder window.
