Well you found a bug, I will be posting a patch soon. To bypass the problem 
add the following:

api.addMainTab('FooTab','xtab123','http://foo.com/, {priority: N});

Where N is a number between 0 and 5

This will determine where the new menu item will show up in the menu, 0 being 
at the top below the dashboard, and 5 being right above Events. Normally it is 
supposed to simply add to the end, however due to the bug it won't.
