treenodes not expanding when selectednodechanged event defined

Hi - I'm using a treeview control in a sharepoint webpart.  It is populating ok and the nodes are expandable normally but when  I add a TreeNodeExpanded event handler to the treeview, nodes after a depth of two stop expanding.  Am I doing something wrong?
When I'm debugging, the treenodexpanded event handler executes regardless of whether the node expands or not.

I believe it has something to do with the way I am populating the tree view.  I attach the relevant code.
       /// <summary>
        /// PopulateTreeView is a recursive function, starting at the supplied SPWeb parameter it will extract all relevant information from the site before recursing for each sub site.
        /// </summary>
        /// <param name="web">web is the starting SPWeb (SharePoint web site) for the function.  In this case the current site i.e. the site on which the web part is placed.</param>
        /// <returns></returns>
        /// copied from http://www.sharepointblogs.com/andynoon/archive/2008/03/20/everyone-wants-one.aspx
        public TreeNode PopulateTreeView(SPWeb web)
        {
            TreeNode top = null;
            if (web != null)
            {
                //get detail of this current web
                if(showLinks ) top = new TreeNode("Site Details(" + web.Title + ")", "0", "/_layouts/images/SPHOMESM.GIF", web.Url, "_blank");
                else top = new TreeNode("Site Details(" + web.Title + ")", "0", "/_layouts/images/SPHOMESM.GIF");
                TreeNode node;
                if(showLinks) 
                {
                    node = new TreeNode(web.Title, "root", "/_layouts/images/ICHTT.GIF", web.Url, "_blank");
                    node.ChildNodes.Add(new TreeNode("URL: " + web.Url, "", "/_layouts/images/NEWLINK.GIF", web.Url, "_blank"));
                }

I've found part of the problem.  When I comment out the event handler I get javascript:Treeview_togglenode(...  appearing in the status bar of ie when the expand/contract (+/-) sign is rolled over and everything works.  When I uncomment the eventhandler and roll over the +/- sign I get javascript:doPostBack(........,'\t0\\root\\') where the dots are the control reference.  Why does this happen?

I've found the solution.  When I am constructing my treenodes in the populatetreeview function I am not passing in a node specific id value. the call should be this:
usr = new TreeNode(user.LoginName + "(" + user.Email + ")", "nodespecificid", "/_layouts/images/STAR.GIF", "mailto:" + user.Email, "");
instead of this:
usr = new TreeNode(user.LoginName + "(" + user.Email + ")", "", "/_layouts/images/STAR.GIF", "mailto:" + user.Email, "");
wahey!
