Bug Description

If you are in "List View' In Nautilus in Ubuntu 11.10 (Gnome 3), if you click on the little arrow to the left of the folder, it unfolds as expected. However, if you don't move your mouse at all, and keep it on the exact same pixel as you did when you unfolded, then when you left-click again, it won't fold the folder back up again. Instead, you have to move your mouse a pixel or two and then click again to have the folder fold up again.

It seems like you shouldn't have to move your mouse at all, you should be able to click on the arrow to unfold the folder and then immediately click again in order to fold the folder up again.

I am reporting this as a bug since it doesn't really seem like a new feature as the expected behavior happens if you move your mouse a pixel or two for the place where you originally clicked.
