Has anyone ever experienced tabstrip.css not loading in the CMS? i am having this issue with one of my sites on my development server. On first login, the tabs and CMS panes do not display properly (see screenshot). However, if you click on the Site Content menu, it does reload everything and the layout is all the sudden fully loaded.

+ I have tried creating 2 separate environments of my site with versions 2.3.1 and 2.3.2 -> same thing happens everytime in both environments
+ I have tried deleting dataobject_manager and swfupload, the 2 modules loaded - also commented out all code referencing these modules in mysite/code objects -> same result in both environments
+ I have cleared the cache in silverstripe-cache folder and cleared the browser cache after making each change -> same result
+ Each iteration I have tested in IE as well as Firefox, so does not seem to be browser-specific

I have not noticed this on any of the other sites i have ever built, so i am completely baffled. Does anyone know where else i can look to see where this is being caused?

if anyone ever comes across this issue, i was able to find the culprit. after process of elimination, it was actually caused by one of my .php class files in my code folder. I evidently had 2 return lines below the closing php tag in one of my class files. when i deleted them on this one class, everything began appearing correctly in the CMS page edit window.
