As I wrote in the title, everytime I launch Loki's file manager it starts writing and deleting a random ~/.config/dconf/user file, causing an excessive disk activity. Is there anyone experiencing the same issue?

Files stores a number of settings in the ~./config/user file (run dconf-editor and navigate to org/pantheon/files to see them). Some of these settings are updated in real time as you change e.g. the zoom level or show/hide hidden files.
However, I have discovered using inotifywatch that this file is continually changing, as you report, while Files is open even with no user interaction so this appears to be a bug. I will raise it in Launchpad.
