Root Cause

This is happening in the "oDom[0].innerHTML = strLabel;" line below. 

pega.composite.Tab.prototype.setLabel = function(strLabel) { 
var o = this.cDom[1]; 
var id = "tabTitle"; 
if (strLabel.length > 16) 
strLabel = strLabel.substring(0,13) + "..."; 
var oDom = pega.util.Dom.getElementsBy(function(el){if ( return true; else return false;},"LABEL",o); 
if(this.isAccessible) { 
oDom = o.getElementsByTagName("a"); 
if(this.gadgetWrapper && this.gadgetWrapper.gadget) { 
this.gadgetWrapper.gadget.setAttribute("title", strLabel); 

oDom[0].innerHTML = strLabel; 
this.label = strLabel;
