TabHost repeating tab content

I am trying to create a TabHost gui and I am experience a weird issue where every tab after the 1st (i tried adding more tabs) contains the content of the last tab that is added.

Below are the xml of the tabs, but essentially it is text, button, text. I am seeing text, button, button when I run the app. Would appreciate suggestions.

For anyone who has the same issue: the problem was reusing Intent. I don't know why. But using a new one for each tab sorted this problem.
I agree. Here's the link:
