DataGrid and paging - odd behaviour

ASP.NET 1.1. Have a datagrid in my aspx page, with no column tag (I'm going to populate them programatically). I have paging turned on, and autogeneratecolumns turned off.

When I click on the page numbers, the PageIndexChanged event doesn't fire.

In the aspx page, when I add the column tag and an invisible bound column in the aspx page (<Columns><asp:BoundColumn Visible="False"> </asp:BoundColumn></Columns>), the PageIndexChanged event fires.

This also happens with repeaters - the ItemCommand doesn't fire unless there's an <ItemTemplate></ItemTemplate> tag in the aspx page.

Why does changing the aspx page change if an event gets triggered?
