onSuccess event is fired more than once

Reported by ronin-132801 (at lighthouseapp) | January 16th, 2011 @ 04:42 PM

mootools 1.3: When sending a form the onSuccess event will be fire once. When sending the form the next time, the onSuccess will be fired twice ...and so on... in mootools 1.2 the event is only fired once.

$('formelement').addEvent('submit', function(e) {
  this.set('send', {
    onComplete: function() {
    onSuccess: function(response){
    onFailure: function(error) {

    • State changed from “new” to “wontfix”

    This is because in 1.3 every time you set a new event, it only gets added instead of replaced. So every time you submit your form an event is added.

    You should first set the options for the request, and only call the .send method in your submit event:

    okay, that's fine and the new code works. But all the existing code has now to be redesigned :-( when using the version with "compatiblity", this happens also.
