The checkbox at the bottom "hide unrelated paths" is a three-state
checkbox. The default is to not hide those paths but color them
differently. If you click again on that checkbox, all paths are shown,
if you click again (to completely uncheck it), then all unrelated paths
are actually hidden (i.e., not shown at all).
