Validation Triggers outside Updatepanel are being triggered.. Why?

I have a single page with both a loginview and a createuserwizard control.   If the user creates a login, I want it to automatically login, and if the user chooses to simply login, they can do so.

I have tried to separate out each control with an updatepanel.  I have templated each control, so it should work.  The problem is that when I select the login button for the login control, it appears to trigger the validation controls inside the createuserwizard which is outside of its updatepanel.  I cannot understand why this is occuring, and how to stop it from happening.

Set the UpdateMode property to "Conditional"

When set to Always, the UpdatePanel is updated on every postback raised from anywhere in the page, so from controls inside the panel, inside other panels or just on the page.

When set to Conditional, the UpdatePanel will be updated only on postback originated by controls inside the panel or from the triggers specified.

As seen in the codes above,
Set the update mode = conditional and also set the validator attribute:
ValidationGroup="vg1"
ValidationGroup="vg2"
 to different groups of validators and buttons to avoid confliction.

I was unable to override the default button in a CreateUserWizard control.  Instead I found that I can set the ValidationGroup for controls within the CreateUserWizard to the ID of the CreateUserWizard instead.

Thanks
