I'm not saying it's unacceptable, I'm just not sure the attached "expanded" behaviour is what you want to see (by default), because you get so few results on a page (if the symbols in the results have many subunits, it could be only one). It's certainly a judgment call. What would you like to see here?

If John, is OK with a user option, would you be OK with making this
behavior user configurable?

If configuration *is* wanted, something like a checkbox somewhere in that dialog for "expand subunits" would probably be a good place, so it can be changed quickly as needed. But if it's a checkbox "in the clear" in the dialog (as opposed to in a context menu or otherwise hidden), it's a space-function trade-off.
