    I added the Downloads and Application Folder to the dock.

    Recently the folders in the dock started to display files and folders that i had already deleted. Additionally there are multiple entries for the same file/folder. These start to pop up randomly. Changing the view (List/Grid/etc) makes no difference.

    I can only get rid of these ghost entries if i remove the folder from the dock and add it again. But this is only a temporary solution as these entries start to reappear over time.

    If i click on these ghost entries nothing happens. This is really annoying because i never know which of the duplicate entries is the real one.

    I have added a screenshot to help you understand the problem.

    How can i fix this?

    I have not personally seen this issue you are having on any of my Yosemite installs. A couple of things to try. Create a new user, reboot and see if it happens in the new user. Try repairing permissions, reboot and see if the problem still happens.
