Uh ... any hints what has changed? A new command line flag?

I am not certain whether these collapsed menus are a good
idea. Admitted, they make the page shorter at first glance.
But at the same time, they make it impossible to search in
the text! 

When I want to see the documentation for, say Data.List, I
hit CTRL-HOME in Mozilla, then type "/data.lis", and finally
press RETURN to follow the link -- and I have reached the
page. The hands never left the keyboard. With collapsed
menus, that doesn't work anymore. 

Anyway, if there was an option to enable/disable that
functionality in Haddock, all would be well. :-)
