I never saw that behavior (expending folders when hover with a file to
move) and that lies beyond my interests. Ironically, that behavior was
harmful for me when I used Mac OS. There were several times that I
released the left button 'simultaneously' with the Finder opened the
destination folder, so that my file got moved to some location inside the
destination folder, which wasn't my intention. I usually have two
Dolphin's windows opened with the detail view mode in each workspace.
The things I like in Dolphin are of another sort. This is designed closer
to the well-established and reliable logic of working in a command line of
console windows. In short, I feel some harmony in this as in good music.
There are a lot of keyboard shortcuts like F3 to split or F2 to rename,
which accelerate work. I also like the pop-out window suggesting a choice
either to move or to copy a file, and I often use the build-in command line
(F4). I'm using KDE in my everyday work though I'm not a coder.
Anyway, let me thank you for your curiosity -- at times it leads to

As I said, the specific problem I reported is not present in several
other file browsers on other systems. If you have a specific
recommendation on what configuration options I need to change to get
the desired behaviour, I'll be glad to try it.
