Customizing CreateUserWizard cause loss of CreateUserWizard1.Username - Can't login create user.

I created a blank aspx page in my project, I put a simple CreateUserWizard tool in the page (mind you, this is after hours of fighting it...) then I entered a user and watch the user name in the CreateUserWizard1_CreatedUser method.  All is fine, I can see the Username, no problems.  Then I go back to the aspx page, selected the "Create User Wizard" and selected... "customize create user step".  This made me a table in the html within the create wizard tool.  Now I run it again, doing nothing else, and type in a new user and CreateUserWizard1.Username is empty quotes ("").  It no longer sees the textbox associated with it.  

What can this be?  Also, I'm not referencing any CSS on this page (but it does exist in the project).
