Image button in a Repeater not firing event onclick

Why don't I get the ItemCommand event fired with the following:

                                                                        <asp:Repeater ID="rptMenubar" Runat=server>
      <ItemTemplate>
      <td>
      <asp:ImageButton ID=imgTest Runat=server CommandArgument=<%# Container.DataItem("Name")%> ImageUrl= <%# Container.DataItem("DefaultImage")%>></asp:ImageButton>
      </td>
      <td width=5 bgcolor="#d7ebf5"><span class="style3"></span></td>
      </ItemTemplate>
      </asp:Repeater>

Although clicking on the button causes a postback, it does not call the following event handler. Why?

 Private Sub rptMenubar_ItemCommand(ByVal source As Object, ByVal e As System.Web.UI.WebControls.RepeaterCommandEventArgs) Handles rptMenubar.ItemCommand

        Select Case e.CommandArgument

        End Select
    End Sub

I would think the likely reason is your repeater is getting rebuilt during postback... for instance you may be inadvertently rebinding the data.

If I use a link button instead of an image button it fires as expected, which wouldn't happen if the repeater is being rebuilt.
