RT-24088 (accepting patches from the community)

The tweak was unassigned simply because the team member that previously 
owned that bug has moved to another team and no longer owns the TabPane 
control. This will definitely have an impact on our ability to handle 
bugs and tweaks, but I do appreciate having these cases where patches 
have been provided brought to my attention.

If you want I will happily work with you to review this patch and 
consider integrating it, but first there is a need to sign an OCA before 
it is possible for us to accept a patch into OpenJFX. You can find more 
out about that here: http://openjdk.java.net/contribute/
