This is nice and seems to work smoothly.

All in all, some good improvements.

 - The 'time remaining' column doesn't work when downloading binaries.  It 
does seem to work when reading article though.
 - When stopping and deleting a running task, the status changes to '???', but 
it is not removed from the task manager.
 - The 'offline' button doesn't kick in until the currently running task(s) 
finishes.  It's not a huge problem though unless you want to pause loading a 
large number of headers. Is this what you intended?
 - I don't know if it's on your todo list, but the column headers scroll off 
the top when paging through the task list.  Also, you cannot click-n-drag to 
select tasks.  These are both inconsistent with the rest of PAN.
