Unless I'm doing something wrong, "filter tvar without tab" doesn't work,
that is the lines with a tab remain in tvar after the filter command.

Suer would be nice to have that work when dynamically building the contents
of a popup menu with indented lines in it...

That would only work if the lines you wanted to filter out only contained a tab character. If they contain other stuff then you need one of the following...

filter tvar without ("*"&tab&"*") -- if the tab can be anywhere in the line
filter tvar without (tab&"*") -- if the tab is at the start of the line, or
filter tvar without ("*"&tab) -- if the tab is at the end of the line
