.click method - behavior varies across browsers

If a new event handler is added to an object via the .click method within a click event, the behavior varies across browsers.

In IE7, the new behavior is added *and executed*. In Firefox, it is added but not executed until the next click event.

To summarize,

function addBehavior() {
  $("#Button1").click(function(){ alert("clicky") }) ;
$(document).ready(function() {
}) ;

The page is adding a second click handler for #Button1 while in the middle of a click event being dispatched to #Button1. I do see the difference in behavior that you describe. What is the *expected* behavior for a case like this? It seems like either way could be correct.
