pagetree always collapses

I have found that when using pagetree (or the left panel navigation tree - perhaps one and the same), if I expand the tree to navigate down to a page I want to see, click on the page, and then return, the tree is collapsed. This can be very annoying when you are trying to view more than one page at a lower level. Is there a setting which controls this behavior? Unfortunately, Windows Explorer has trained me to expect the tree to remain expanded. It feels like I spend a lot of time expanding the tree, and then re-expanding the tree, and then... You probably get the idea.

This might not be exactly what you're looking for, but you sure can "lessen" this effect by specifying a start depth for your pagegree (

For example, in the Navigation section for my space's theme, I have the following code : {pagetree:startDepth=2}

Adding the startDepth parameter to the macro does help to a certain extent, but I don't think I'd want to go past the value of 2 as then the tree would start to become to unwieldy (depending of course on how many pages are in your space). I think the navigation behavior is just a weak spot that perhaps could be addressed down the road.
