    I did not want exactly the same behaviour you want. :)
    Anyway, I notice two tabs selected when I used the same indexfile, 
in the same directory, for diferent
    tabs.  In fact, I was using the same index file because I did not 
state it clear in the declaration. Then,
    it used the default.

    It was supposed to have the behaviour you want the way it is right 
now. Check to see if the page
    was not cached, after the last change. Another option, put this in 
another directory like sub, and other.
    BTW, I am using version 0.6.
