Bug Description

Binary package hint: evolution

I am filing this as a usability issue, having had several customers reporting their email / folders were gone.

They had collapsed the folders by clicking on the small black triangle at the beginning of the line but unlike other Gnome apps such a tree can't be expanded (or collapsed) again by double-clicking anywhere else on the line.

gconf-editor and Nautilus are two examples of applications that behave as expected.

As above - plus the pointer / icon does not change when hovering on the line or triangle making it harder to discover the feature.
