  This *seems* confirmed on 6.0.1 on linux (32 bit). I first separated the 
last code chunk (with Manipulate and TabView) and ran it without initializing 
anything else. It worked fine (though of course what it returned in each tab 
view was no content). Then I ran the rest of the code, and things still 
worked fine (with Manipulate automatically having been updated with the 
various distributions). Then I re-evaluated the last code chunk (which should 
have just run the Manipulate[TabView[.... stuff) and the front-end and kernel 
promptly crashed, with no warning or crash report.
