Why doesn't AllowAutomaticUpdate/AllowAutomaticInserts work when I'm using a user control as my edit form?

Insert/update works great if I comment out my EditFormType="WebUserControl" settings and I'm using the built-in EditForms or InPlace editing mode.  But when I add my user control settings in the EditFormSettings and try to update a row, my changes aren't saved at all.  No error - it just doesn't save the changes I make in the form.  I have other pages using user controls as the edit form but they use InsertCommand and UpdateCommand events instead of AllowAutomaticUpdate/AllowAutomaticInserts - do I need to do the same thing here and if so, why? 

Here's my grid code:

<%@ Control Language="C#" AutoEventWireup="true" CodeBehind="PurchaseOrders.ascx.cs" 
    Inherits="AdminWebsite.Admin.UserControls.Projects.PurchaseOrders.PurchaseOrders" %>
