AFP Finder Bug Report/Collapse AFP Folders over the Command Line

Update:10-11Source: network consolidation

Hello,
I have a MacPro server that I am using to deliver scanned images of business recoreds.  I absolutely love how cover flow and spotlight work toghether and in fact this is one of the main reasons I chose Apple in 2009.
However, the number of records has grown quite a lot.  Somehow today a user opened/expanded all of the folders and now every user is seeing all folders expanded.  Unforunately it has become impossible to get a directory listing because there are over a million pages opening previews.  This has caused my business to come to a grinding halt!
So my suggestion to Apple is that this is a bug!  This is just like Lion that remembers which windows and applications are open and what a mess that created for people who open a lot of windows and so many users looked to create a workaround to prevent this either for specific applicaitons or to disable it all together.  Fortunately in Lion updates and ML it is possible to disable this feature.  This needs to be changed because because when a computer defaults to opening windows and resources not requested by the user(s) it bogs down the entire system and degrades the user's experience on the application they are actually working on.  Who in their right mind would want Safari to open up Drudge Report, CNN, Yahoo, every dirty movie I've ever watched and 50 pages of LOL Cats if I just want to check the weather or try and find a good resteraunt to take my wife to dinner.  Opening windows or folders by default is not an elegant use of our computer resources, is not minimalist design, and is not helpful in any way whatsoever.  These features create nothing but dust and clutter and users should demand these so called features be turned off by default.
And my question for the super users:  HOW CAN I FIX THIS?  There must be a plist file I can delete and recreate or at least edit?  A permissions change to prevent this from happening again?  Sudo something?
Thanks,
Jake
p.s.  A new MacPro with thunderbolt would be nice.

Thank you.  Yes it is a read only directory so I am flummoxed as to how .dsstore was modified?  I have tested multiple times to be sure users cannot accidentally delete or modify an archived file. tomorrow I will look to see how ds store was modified.
Users upload files into a drop box and they are inserted with rsync to prevent overwrites.   Several pitfalls to using finder for this purpose most notably the tendency to overwrite completely a folder so files may get deleted.   These are important records so early on I set it up so once a file was inserted it could not be removed without logging in as a specific management user.
But the user interface is so awesome to view the files I just can't imagine a competitive product being so nice as to scroll through the pages in cover flow like you are flipping through a file.  Most of the time I can scan the files' contents without even oppening preview or even hitting the space bar. Cover flow gives me the intuitive feel of paper I like.
If you have a product to suggest I would look at it.
