What version of tabbar.el are you using?  What you describe sounds
like a bug that was fixed in CVS some time ago (the current CVS
version is 1.69 (tabbar-version 2.0) from 8 June 2006; I cannot
reproduce what you describe in that version).  If you are using the
latest released version (tabbar-version 1.3), I would highly recommend
replacing it with the CVS version.  But if you do, be aware that there
were major changes between 1.3 and 2.0, and you may have to make
changes to your ~/.emacs or custom-file.

Are you saying this shows you a sorted and group buffer list, like
msb-mode does?  That would be very strange.  I don't get that with
mouse-buffer-menu in GNU Emacs 22.0.93.1 (i686-pc-linux-gnu, GTK+
Version 2.10.6) of 2007-02-08.
