findPanelPopupParent.mel error

Not sure if this belongs in Programming or Character Setup, it's a little of each I guess so I'll try it here.

I have a character GUI, just some nurbs curves driving the face. Each time I load the file and select one of the controllers and press W to go to the move tool I get the following error :

 // Error: file: C:/Program Files/Autodesk/Maya2012/scripts/others/findPanelPopupParent.mel line 40: Object 'Character:facialControls|tabLayout4' not found. // 

The character GUI has some tabs in it, but they are created via strings ($tab_1,$tab_2 etc) so I don't know why Maya is looking for a particular one like this. The controls themselves are using simple translation coordinates to drive the rig.

{edit -I fixed it by adding a paneLayout to the GUI and now Maya has stopped grumbling : )
