I'm quite lost here.  From the code it seems obvious that tabbar uses
`vertical-motion' which makes a temporary buffer appear in the selected
window without displaying it in order to calculate the tabs to display.
Apparently, the problem is that `vertical-motion' does

      XSETBUFFER (w->buffer, current_buffer);

but does not

      set_marker_both (w->pointm, buffer, BEG, BEG_BYTE);

as the comment I posted earlier suggests.  This makes the subsequent
unshow_buffer abort.  In any case, someone who knows `vertical-motion'
better than me will have to look into this.
