Hi Ryan,

I still think it's a javascript problem (most of the fancy DHTML tricks in 
galaxy, like expanding/collapsing datasets, are done in javascript - so when 
something like that doesn't work, it's a good place to start).

First indication:
If you go to your galaxy server with Firefox and open the "JavaScript error 
console", you'll see the following error:
Error: $.jStore is undefined
Source File: http://XXXXXXXXX.XXXXX.edu/galaxy/static/scripts/galaxy.base.js?v=8
Line: 1

Just to be sure, this is not a real galaxy bug, this is a mismatch between what 
should be the correct javascript and the actual javascript that you are using.

So the next step is to see if there are real differences: compare the 
javascript you have with the one you're supposed to have (if you've updated to 
the latest galaxy-dist):

## Download your version:
$ wget -O galaxy.base.js 

## Download galaxy's version:
$ hg clone http://www.bx.psu.edu/hg/galaxy galaxy-dist

## compare them:
$ ls -l galaxy.base.js  galaxy-dist/static/scripts/packed/galaxy.base.js

# Obviously, they are not the same.
# Assuming "wget" maintains the file's actual date (Yours is from Feb. 21st), 
then I can assume you're still using an older version of the javascript file.

Perhaps you've pulled but didn't update ?
Or merged and took the wrong version ?

Check the actual file on your disk to continue and debug it,
but IMHO it's definitely a javascript mismatch problem.

Hope it helps,
