Link Button does not always work in codebehind

Hi All,

I have two Web "linkbuttons" and a label on my aspx page as follows:
<asp:LinkButton id="HomeLinkButton" runat="server">Home</asp:LinkButton>
<asp:LinkButton id="PreviousLinkButton" runat="server">Previous</asp:LinkButton>
<asp:Label id="lblResult" runat="server"></asp:Label>

In the codebehind C# page, I have them both declared properly as follows:
protected System.Web.UI.WebControls.LinkButton HomeLinkButton;
protected System.Web.UI.WebControls.LinkButton PreviousLinkButton;
protected System.Web.UI.WebControls.Label lblResult;

In the onlick events of each, i have the following:
      private void HomeLinkButton_Click(object sender, System.EventArgs e)
            {
                  lblResult.Text = "Clicked Home Link";
            }

      private void PreviousLinkButton_Click(object sender, System.EventArgs e)
            {
                  lblResult.Text = "Clicked Previous Link";
            }

When I click on the "Previous" Link, the label is updated.
When I click on the "Home" link, it is not.

Why?

I have refreshed the page and clicked in different orders. No difference.
I have even made a third function that is called from each of the onlcick events. No change.

Please tell me how to make this work?

TIA

Is the event handler properly assigned? Look in the designer generated code or the property editor
