Your code snip at pastebin looks good to me.

This is in my opinion also correct.

Why not is to answer by Benoit I think.

One question did you try the print .count and was the value correct ?

The only thing I do not understand is the line with 'idx = tabstrip1.count - 1'
Let asume we call this sub the first time and ther are no tabs.
Then count=0 so idx will be -1. 
Setting in the WITH section the .index=idx should fail because the index 
never can be negtive.

Sorry but I can't help you more then with the suggested code parts, 
As I understand it does work now but not in the expected logical way.
