PF9.4 loops while loading directory in column view

often, while opening a directory in PF9 column view, a little wheel spins indefinitely in the status bar, but no files are displayed. When I switch to file or list view, the files are instantly displayed.
Finder itself also has no problems displaying the files.

Note: the affected directories reside on a bcfs volume created by Boxcryptor, I don't know if that matters.

Please find attached a screenshot and two analysis files, the second being QuickLookUIService also running for Path Finder.
