FIX duplicate requests of RadButton when a form's defaultbutton property is set
RadButton peforms duplicate requests when:

- A RadButton exists on the page and the form is submitted when a text box is focused and enter key is hit.
- the defaultbutton property of the form is set to the id of the RadButton

For the time being the following functions' override can be used:

        <script type="text/javascript">
            Telerik.Web.UI.RadButton.prototype._isButtonActiveElement = function (eventTarget) {
                var doc = eventTarget && eventTarget.ownerDocument ? eventTarget.ownerDocument : document;
                var activeElement = doc.activeElement;
                if (!activeElement)
                    return false;
                if (activeElement === this.get_element() || $telerik.$.contains(this.get_element(), activeElement))
                    return true;
                return false;

            var originalMouseClickHandler = Telerik.Web.UI.RadButton.prototype._mouseClickHandler;
            Telerik.Web.UI.RadButton.prototype._mouseClickHandler = function (args) {
                if (!this.get_enabled() || this.get_readOnly()) {
                    return false;

                var eventTarget = ? : args.srcElement;
                if (eventTarget === this.get_element() && !this._isButtonActiveElement(eventTarget) && !$telerik.isTouchDevice) {
                    return false;
      , args);

The workaround must be placed after the declaration of the RadButton, in order to take effect.
