Fix displaying errors in GitHub pane.
#1787 refactored `InfoPanel` but didn't update `GitHubPaneView` with its new behavior. So:

- Don't initialy set `infoPanel.Visibility` to `Collapsed`: `InfoPanel` will handle this itself
- Set `ShowCloseButton` to show the `x` button to close the error

Fixes #2172
Fixes #2058
