Google Drive Crashing Finder (Error -609) [OS X 10.9]

Hi,
Starting today (11/4/13) Google Drive appears to be crashing Finder. Until today, Drive was working fine. The symptom starts whenever I have a full screen application. About once a minute, the screen switches to the Desktop. I can swipe back to my working application but the problem repeats. The problem seems to go away when I disable syncing. Below are my log files. Any help would be appreciated.

Same here, finder crashing every minute or so, disable syncing didn't help, I had to quit google drive, then no more finder crashes.

Ditto. It didn't happen when I first installed mavericks... just started today, oddly enough. Was there an update?
 
Closing out Google Drive stops the madness.
 
Bad google!

Thank you, that worked for me. At last someone finds a real solution. Maybe you should work for Google, seems like they need a few more clever people.
