Thanks, Craig, for the fix, but checking the archives the tab issue was
not addressed directly (and posts like yours that mention Linux I tend

Hiro - this is the kind of major change to the interface that I think

into the last beta on a tight release time schedule.  Users with
different OS's should have some time to test it, as well as comment
about whether they like the UI or not. Right now, the change doesn't

suggest the new UI be withdrawn and looked at again with the next
