If the tab is greyed, there is a big X on mouseover. What do we do with 
this X ?

I think that, if the tab is operational, it should not be greyed. Maybe 
instead of being greyed and the big X, there should be a message on 
mouseover stating that "this table is probably empty, unless an external 
source changed it".

There is also the reverse case: when PMA built the tabs, table was not 
empty but now it is!
