thanks for that. In addition to above I observed:

* no error-mask if the API call for the task list fails. E.g., I tested once with the
  original upid_get_status_type which results in a "500: Undefined subroutine &PVE::Tools::upid_get_status_type
  called at /usr/share/perl5/PVE/API2/Tasks.pm line 188." but the UI did not showed that, just stayed empty.

* Mark that a filter is active if the filter view is hidden, e.g., we could show a short
  text in the tbar at the left of the "Filter" button?

* Maybe add a "Clear All Filter" button? Could be useful if one set more than one field.
