Yes. Your problem is that earlier versions of lilypond used a non
default behavoir regarding string numbering.
Earlier versions numbered the strings from buttom and up, so that the
buttom string was string 1 and so forth.
1.6.6 does it the default way - to number the strings from top and down.
Hence the "official" solution to your problem is to reverse the list of
string numbers:

\property TabStaff.stringTunings = #'(16 9 2 -5)

- or, if you are more like a search-replace guy:

\property TabStaff.stringTunings = #(reverse '(-5 2 9 16))

and everything should work.
If you REALLY want the buttom string to be number one then you
alternatively could 

      \property TabStaff.stringOneTopmost = ##f
      \property TabStaff.highStringOne = ##f

I realize that the docu does not really mention this, and I will look
into this as soon as my computer is up and running (currently I have
nothing but a black screen).
