When pages have tabs on them, and there are validations on the page, the validations are not submitted when a tab is pressed. The page you are on when you click a tab, is getting submitted, saving its values.

Why are Page validations not firing when navigating between pages of an application using tabs? Is this a bug or the intended behavior?
