Hi Tim,
Thanks for replying. Here's our tabs.xml file (modify a little, to maintain the annonimity):

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<!DOCTYPE tabs PUBLIC "-//APACHE//DTD Cocoon Documentation Tab V1.1//EN" "http://forrest.apache.org/dtd/tab-cocoon-v11.dtd">

<tabs software="proj"
  <tab id="releasenotes" label="Release Overview" dir="project/release_documentation"/>
  <tab id="architecture" label="Architecture" dir="project/architecture"/>

I searched JIRA before, but I haven't found anything of use. On the other hand maybe the search terms that I used were not appropriate (and it's pretty
hard to express the problem that I am having in a few search terms).

Can you share your tabs definition?  I seem to remember some problems
with loosing context in 0.6 - have you had a chance to search JIRA for
old issues?
