My ASP.NET server/composite controls were not getting events from child controls, but only on the real pages, they worked fine on test ones.  It turned out that I had a master page enabled but didn't have an ID set for it, so it was auto generating it.

Just add this to your master pages code file:-

protected override void OnInit(EventArgs e) 
	this.ID = "SomeName"; 

And child controls will start working as expected.  I don't often do web development so this stumped me for quite a while...
