Thanks Holger,

That's a good tip and I'll use it. I'd still like a way of having the
whole thing come up collapsed so I could drill down without trying to
remember the folder name -- sometimes you remember where it is in the
hierarchy rather than its exact name. I was about to say there's no
reason your trick wouldn't work on a collapsed list, but then I
manually collapsed a list and it wouldn't read nodes in a collapsed

At this point I'd settle for a collapse branch (which we already have
in the minus sign), a completely expand branch, and a expand next level
in branch. That would allow both methods of looking for a folder, and
would change nothing for those enjoying the current default of opening
