While playing with , it is only after many minutes that I understood that the 'Refresh' button does also 'Refresh the page' (and not only the 'Status Messages' area), it is very useful for the rest of the page. This is why I think it should be renamed to 'Refresh the page'.

What does this "refresh" button do? What is its function?
I am using "too afraid to touch it logic" here since at first encounter it may be a mystery as to its function.

Don't be scared. Click it and see what happens!

The location of the button is slightly misleading, suggesting the logs will be refreshed on activation, which invariably they won't.

Given that the action is just to reload the index page, perhaps a better placement for the button is in the global tunnel control section, floated left, renamed to "Refresh Status". However, ideally this should be a fallback mechanism (hidden when javascript is active), with an ajax page refresh that results in better syncing between status indicated in the tunnel manager and on the sidebar.
