Then recursively bisect your init file to find the culprit.

You can use command `comment-region' to comment or (with `C-u')
uncomment a selection of text.  Use it to comment out 1/2, then
3/4, 7/8, ... of your init file.  Narrow down the code you use,
to find the problem.

That's a misreading of that readme.  What it says is that Emacs
24.4 and later provide `dired-hide-details-mode'.  If all you
want is what that offers then you do not need any 3rd-party

But if you want what `dired-details+.el' provides and you have
Emacs 24.4 or later then you can get those additional features
from Dired+ (library `dired+.el').

I've reworded that part of the readme to help prevent misreading:

NOTE: If you use Emacs 24.4 or later, and if you use library
      `dired+.el', then you do not need this library or library

      Instead, you can use `dired-hide-details-mode'.  Library
      `dired+.el' enhances `dired-hide-details-mode' to give it
      the same features as `dired-details+.el' provides.  In
      that case, use `(require 'dired+.el)', and use option
      `diredp-hide-details-propagate-flag' instead of option

Again, bisect your init file, to find out what you are doing
that causes the behavior you don't like.
