Project window - directory structure automatically folds

Using webstorm 2016.1.1, I have an issue with directory structure shown on Project window.

It used to "remember" which directory was open / closed (as in which part of a directory tree was folded / expanded), now when I click on a Project window label to show it, very often entire tree is folded and I have to manually expand to navigate to whatever I had opened before. What's worse it's that it isn't deterministic - sometimes I hide project window, reopen it (via clicking its label) and tree is intact, most of the time it's completely folded though :(

This is something that must have changed recently, because I didn't see that problem in previous versions.

I'm aware of the "scroll from source", "scroll to source" options - I have both of those options disabled. 

Is there perhaps a shortcut that I'm hitting (without being aware) that fold the tree structure behind the scenes, or what's going on?

Yeah, it might be it - thanks for that - I'll keep watching there - no solution yet :(

This issues still remains... the open child-folders closes if i close the parent-folder! So do all folders close, when i collapse the root-folder... really irritating!
Any helps??

This has nothing to do with the original post. This behaviour was always present (from very beginning) -- at very least I do not remember any different one in Project View.

However... is there any option to disable auto.collapsing or better start a new post?

I'm not aware of such option.

And I have doubts that such option exists -- I see nothing related in the Registry.
