I have the same problem,
works fine in 2.7 but 2.8 tabs are failing.
The previously made suggestions haven't worked for me.

I am using the following :

function init_my_script() {
		jQuery(document).ready( function() {
		} );
function create_ui_tabs() {
		jQuery('#mytabsnav').tabs({ fxFade: true, fxSpeed: 'fast' });


The above script actually loads into mid body.

The jquery-ui-tabs script is loading into the footer;
<script type='text/javascript' src='http://localhost/wordpress_2.8/wp-admin/load-scripts.php?c=1&amp;load=hoverIntent,common,jquery-color,jquery-ui-core,jquery-ui-tabs&amp;ver=cf44a8aa087bf74bbcc19532e4707902' 

Thank for any pointers.
