You'd probably be better off with the code from the stock rc:

Key $MODKEY-$RIGHT # Move to the next tag
        wmiir xwrite /ctl view $(wi_tags | wi_nexttag)
Key $MODKEY-$LEFT # Move to the previous tag
        wmiir xwrite /ctl view $(wi_tags | sort -r | wi_nexttag)

It's probably because of something you have in tagrules, or,
failing that, you're using a terminal that for some reason marks
all of its new windows as belonging to the same group.
