Can't remove tabs from extended RedirectorPage

I'm able to extend RedirectorPage. But for some reason, I can't remove tabs that I've created for other pages. I've successfully done this on other extended pages like BlogHolder. I tried removing 'MenuTitle' just to test and that works fine. So I tried removing fields from my tabs instead of the whole tab and that didn't work either. Just wondering if anyone has experienced the same issue.

class RedirectorPageCustom extends DataExtension {

   static $has_one = array(
   function updateCMSFields(FieldList $fields) {
      // REMOVE
      $fields->removeByName('FancyList'); // NOT WORKING
      $fields->removeByName('CallOut'); // NOT WORKING
      $fields->removeByName('Widgets'); // NOT WORKING
      $fields->removeByName('Snippets'); // NOT WORKING
      return $fields;

I assume this is because the extension is called before the RedirectorPage getCMSFields. BlogHolder has a bit of a hack to get the order correct.

Seems like a terrible workaround though..

Seems like it was working in pre-SS3 if I'm remembering correctly. Either way, thanks for the info Willr.
