Looking further, I think I finally understand: while the tabbed  
sections are indeed hidden from view with display: none, the options  
toggling apparently isn't.

For the options toggling, we are using the mootools framework's  
slideOut and slideIn routines, I can send them a suggestion to make  
sure that slideOut() properly forces display:none;.
