Fix menu search in refreshed layout evolution fixed

If upon menu search user has been changing user mode, search results were not updated properly and user could have seen reseller entries on user level, etc.

It is fixed it by making a search dependent on user menu entries.

Previously main search bar would close automatically if user clicked any of the filter options. The issue was fixed by properly managing click outside main search bar events.

Fix In-Progress table in Admin Backup/Transfer evolution fixed

Every 30 secods selected rows in in-progress backups table were unselected, due to data reload. Issue is fixed by properly restoring selection after the request.

Under narrow viewport, the text in statistics blocks has been going outside ot it's limits. Now it is fixed with hiding less significant data under narrow viewports.

Conversion of UTF-8 names in mail directories in cPanel import fixed

Importing cPanel user accounts having mail directories with UTF-8 symbols used to leave directories non-functional in DirectAdmin. This was caused because cPanel and DirectAdmin uses different mail directory encoding configuration.

cPanel Import tools is upgraded to automatically convert all UTF-8 names during account import. Conversion preserves original directory names.
