Sidebar items always point to the page tab

No, it's an issue for plugins that add sidebar menu items in two or more tabs. When one of the sidebar menu items is clicked, GetSimple only knows that a function of the plugin was called (load.php?id=<plugin_name>&...), but it can't know, which tab to display. Thus the plugin itself has to analyze the request parameters and decide which tab is the current one and set this in the register_plugin(....) call.

It's just an inconvenience for these plugins (e.g. I18N Special pages), but I don't see any way to solve this easily with the current plugin/exec_action infrastructure.
I18N, I18N Search, I18N Gallery, I18N Special Pages - essential plugins for multi-language sites.
