Make quick filters ignore relations in EventViewer

Suppose you have an event viewer with these events:
* Alert 1 - severity 5
* Alert 2 - Severity 4
* Alert 3 - Severity 5

Then we create a Quick Filter (in the top right corner of the event viewer) Severity = 5.
Now the event viewer shows:

* Alert 1 - severity 5

We expect either:

* Alert 1 - severity 5
* Alert 3 - Severity 5


* Alert 1 - severity 5
* Alert 2 - Severity 4 (Visible because of children)
* Alert 3 - Severity 5

This is especially confusing since the placeholder text in the quick filter box says: "Enter search term" wich indicates that you are about to search among ALL the events you are currently seeing on your screen.
