[Mono-list] postback in frames

today I got a message from someone, how includes a page of mine in a
iframe on their website. In this page are some postback linkbuttons
which are generated by mono (asp.net). In none framed situations these
work just fine, but when its been used in the frame, somehow then dont
work. When clicking the link, the frame is being refreshed, but nothing
happens. Mono generates this following javascript for the postback:

<script type="text/javascript"> 

window._form = theForm;
window.__doPostBack = function (eventTarget, eventArgument) {
	if(theForm.onsubmit && theForm.onsubmit() == false) return;
	theForm.__EVENTTARGET.value = eventTarget;
	theForm.__EVENTARGUMENT.value = eventArgument;

Firefox doesnt give an error, so im not sure what the problem is. If you would like to test it, the working (no-framed) url is:


and an example of the not working situation (there are more situations like this which dont work, just like a local html with iframe also gives this error):


Is this a bug, or should I do something special to let the postback know its in a frame?
