Just tested it, seems to work fine. But I have three other points:
1. I agree with Bernhard Kleine, that "warte..." isn't the correct
translation/doesn't have the meaning of "idle..."
2. Why are messages like "running mktexlsr ..." shown under the error
tab in the Logs window. From my point of view these messages belong to
the standard output. Only the text following "Übersprungen, da nicht
installiert" should go into the error tab.
3. Today I had a long list of updates, so the tlmgr command had a long
argument list. This increased the TeX Live Shell window to the right and
I got an annoying large window. Is it possible to break the command line
into small portions to prevent the increase of window area?
