Thanks Jean for verifying this.

I have Removed Manipulate from the outside of TabView. Now the problem seems 
to have gone away.  Now TabView is the main interface, and it calls 
functions which uses Manipulate.  Before I was using Manipulate which has 
TabView inside it.

I am still learning all of this stuff, so I might not be doing it right :) 
but I do not think Mathematica should crash none-the-less.

Any way, here is the current file, in case you are interested, which works 
OK now (keep fingers crossed)

I like the new Mathematica GUI features, but I still have hard time 
arranging stuff on it where I want them. For example, with TabView, when I 
had too many tabs, I did not know how to tell it to make them stacked one on 
top of each others, like in a 2 rows, so they do not go too far to the 
right. Then I found I can make Alignment Left, which had more space to stack 
them vertically, even though I wanted the Tabs at the top. So I compromised.

May be with more time, I'll get better at it. But it would be nice if the 
next version of Mathematica comes with a GUI builder, where one can just 
drag and drop controls where they want them. It would make it easier to 
design an interface that way, I think.
