I've just found that a grid, using a buffered store, no longer works when the grid is included on a tab panel, unless it's on the first tab. This used to work fine in 4.1 and also appears to be ok if the store isn't buffered.

Here's the code I've been using to test this:

<!DOCTYPE html />

    Ext.Loader.setConfig({ enabled: true })


      name: 'Test',

      launch: function ()
          extend: 'Ext.data.Model',
            fields: [{
              name: 'title',
              mapping: 'topic_title'
            }, {
              name: 'forumtitle',
              mapping: 'forum_title'
            }, {
              name: 'forumid',
              type: 'int'
            }, {
              name: 'username',
              mapping: 'author'
            }, {
              name: 'replycount',
              mapping: 'reply_count',
              type: 'int'
            }, {
              name: 'lastpost',
              mapping: 'post_time',
              type: 'date',
              dateFormat: 'timestamp'
            'lastposter', 'excerpt', 'topic_id'
          idProperty: 'post_id'

        var forumStore = Ext.create('Ext.data.Store', {
          id: 'store',
          model: 'ForumThread',
          buffered: true,
          pageSize: 50,
          proxy: {
            type: 'jsonp',
            url: 'http://www.sencha.com/forum/topics-remote.php',
            reader: {
              root: 'topics',
              totalProperty: 'totalCount'
          autoLoad: true

        function renderTopic(value, p, record)
          return Ext.String.format(
              '<a href="http://sencha.com/forum/showthread.php?p={1}" target="_blank">{0}</a>',

        var forumGrid = Ext.create('Ext.grid.Panel', {
          width: 700,
          height: 500,
          title: 'ExtJS.com - Browse Forums',
          store: forumStore,
          loadMask: true,
          selModel: {
            pruneRemoved: false
          columns: [{
            xtype: 'rownumberer',
            width: 50,
            sortable: false
          }, {
            tdCls: 'x-grid-cell-topic',
            text: "Topic",
            dataIndex: 'title',
            flex: 1,
            renderer: renderTopic,
            sortable: false
          }, {
            text: "Author",
            dataIndex: 'username',
            width: 100,
            hidden: true,
            sortable: false
          }, {
            text: "Replies",
            dataIndex: 'replycount',
            align: 'center',
            width: 70,
            sortable: false
          }, {
            id: 'last',
            text: "Last Post",
            dataIndex: 'lastpost',
            width: 130,
            renderer: Ext.util.Format.dateRenderer('n/j/Y g:i A'),
            sortable: false

          layout: 'fit',
          items: Ext.create('Ext.tab.Panel',
            activeTab: 0,
            items: [
//            {
//              title: 'Forum Grid',
//              items: [forumGrid]  
//            },
              title: 'Test',
              html: 'test'    
              title: 'Forum Grid',
              items: [forumGrid]      


If the "buffered: true" attribute is removed from the store then everything works fine. Similarly, if the grid is moved to the first panel (by uncommenting the commented out section and commenting the current forum grid tab item), then again it works ok.

I've also noticed that in Firebug that the calls are being made to the back end ok, it's just that nothing appears in the grid.

I'm presuming this is a bug, unless there's some new config thing I'm missing that has been introduced in version 4.2?

I've also just noticed that the data will actually appear if the grid is scrolled down (initially the grid is blank). This doesn't help me though, since some of my grids have only a few items and therefore the scroll bar doesn't appear.
