As far as i can test, the tabs should work just fine, so my suggestion to you would be to either test with the problem plugins(those causing the JS errors) disabled or test Post UI Tabs on a seperate install that doesn’t include those plugins.
Do the demo tabs on the plugin’s configuration page work?
They both use the same version of jQuery and jQuery UI, because they are loaded from the internal set of scripts included in WordPress. So unless you’ve recently updated WordPress, the script versions would have been exactly the same across both versions of Post UI Tabs.
These are the scripts the plugin loads(in both 1.0.8 and 1.0.9).
