The order of base classes is essential.

  The available tabs are controlled by the class attribute

  When you inherit from several base classes, you get
  "manage_options" from the first one that defines it
  (in your case probably "DefaultDublinCoreImpl".).

  It is very likely that you must combine the "manage_options"
  from the base classes in your derived class.
