Looks like you've hit a bug - the TabStrip items are not removed on refresh. I've fixed it and the fix will be available with the next internal build and the service pack. As workaround, you can remove them manually - check the updated jsFiddle below, which also does the filter you want.:
I also updated your points for the find.
