Page Events not always firing

I have previously added custom .aspx pages to the root of my blog without really any issues.  For example, my Subscriptions page works better for me as a stand alone .aspx page than using a Blog Page due to issues with the URL handler.   One problem I haven't been able to overcome is the fact that .aspx pages at the root of my blog don't fire off the page event handlers.  So extensions don't have a change to fire, like the GoogleAnalytics and the Lightbox extensions.  I have added the following to the .aspx.cs files but this didn't seem to solve the problem:
public partial class Gallery : BlogEngine.Core.Web.Controls.BlogBasePage
Does anyone have a suggestion as to why this doesn't work as expected?
