I also have this problem. Although my mode is set to client. Tabs render then prerenderview is fired. Anyone have a solution?
Has anyone else run into this. We use the prerenderview to load our session objects everytime the page is hit. Will this be fixed in another release?
I can't reproduce your issue. I see data in components placed in tab fetched after listener call.
P.S. found only one important issue but JSF 2 related there http://java.net/jira/browse/JAVASERVERFACES-2162
Please provide more details if still beleive that it's RF issue. (page and bean code and steps to reproduce)
