Yes, I think that's the point: for childless folders there is no
expander, nothing to see, and yet clicking on that small area still has
special handling "as if" there was an expander.

(IOW it's as if, for childless folders, instead of removing the
expander it had simply been hidden / not been drawn, but cliking on
"it" (where it would have been drawn) was still possible and processed
with special (expand/collapse) meaning.)

When Andrej is talking abount fixing it, it would mean "removing" that
special area, i.e. have it behave as when clicking on the rest of the
row (again, this is only for childless folders).
But obviously, whenever there is an expander (i.e. folders with
children) then nothing would change, everything works as expected


Also, trying to be clear: when I said "toggle its icon" earlier I was
then referring to the folder's icon, toggling between that of an opened
folder and a closed one; I was not talking about the expander you
click on.
