The "unexpand" button of the details view looks to me like some kind of stop action (and it has the red color). Plus: there is no tooltip to explain the function before cllcking it.

What is the recommended way to handle this? Arrow up/down icon? Including an always visible text ("Show details" / "Hide details") to avoid tooltips?

e.g. rough mockup:

The bug is now fixed by using another icon.

Personally, I think the icon (showing an arrow "<" which has no tooltip) is not self-explanatory; to display some text (like "Show details" in the screenshot above) would make the situation perfectly clear. What do you think?
