I am not sure I fully understand the issue. Could you please send us the exact steps for reproducing the described behavior? Did you make any custom implementations in the SiteTabstrip user control? Also, it will be very helpful if you provide us with a link to the administration of your web site to figure out what is wrong.
Thanks for your cooperation in advance.
