Event not being triggered

I have an event binding defined thus:

And I am triggering it with this:

The the code that triggers the event is definitely being executed as evidenced in the Chrome debugger and $(document).data('events')['foo'] contains the binding when the event is triggered, yet when I put a breakpoint in the handler, it doesn't trip. What gives?

Working fine for me:

Can you make an example where it is not working?

I found the problem. Another snippet of code was unbinding the event and rebinding it to a different function. I didn't notice this because the Chrome debugger doesn't show the guts of the function. Is there a way to see that in Chrome?

I agree. Here's the link:
