[OS X Emacs] Aquamacs Emacs 1.4rc1 [tabs]

I really like the new tabs feature.  It's especially useful for  
conserving screen real estate when I'm using Aquamacs on a relatively  
small screen (my MB Air when traveling).

But I can't figure out just how it's supposed to work.  In particular,  
when I open a new tab and then try to put a buffer on it, I windup  
with yet another tab, and the first one empty.  That is,moving to the  
new (empty) tab and doing "find-file" Aquamacs opens a new tab for the  
file, and leaves the other one empty. As a result, the "open buffer in  
new tab" command is wasteful: once I do that, the new tab won't  
actually be used.  Why isn't there an "open file in new tab" command  
or the like?

I'm sure I'm missing something obvious, and there's probably even  
documentation somewhere of how to use this more efficiently.  So I'd  
appreciate being pointed to what I ought to have read.
