.select(TAB_INDEX) does work but doesn't change the active state of the element

There is still the old one marked as active even if I see the content from the newly selected tab.

I’m changing the tabs within the tabs controller like this (sorry for the gist link but I don’t understand how to highlight code in this forum editor):
