[SOLVED] weird webgui problem in pbs

i have observed some weird behaviour in webgui.

it happens sometimes and is not really reproducable exactly, but happens at least 1 out of 10 times

when entering backup job view and then opening the backup job with double click (or sometimes it's also happening when using edit button), sometimes i don't get shown the contents of the backup job but an empty list with a RED frame (see screenshot), where no vm is selected. red frame goes away when i select a VM but there ARE VMs selected, it's simply not shown correctly.

at the network level, it looks the list of not-backuped VMs is fetched correctly, so it's more likely a frontend/browser problem

has anybody also observed this behaviour or can reproduce it ?

browser is recent firefox , but i can also reproduce in google chrome and safari ( all osx).

three-node cluster with pve 7.4 , remote connection via openvpn

it seems, the webgui failed to fetch the list of VMs to be backed up.

Any error in the dev console? CTRL + SHIFT + J or for the full dev tools CTRL + SHIFT + I
