jQuery Button.click() event is triggered twice

I have the following problem with this code:

<button id="delete">Remove items</button>

$("#delete").button({
icons: {
primary: 'ui-icon-trash'
}
}).click(function() {
alert("Clicked");
});


If I click this button, the alert show up two times. It's not only with this specific button but with every single button I create.

What am I doing wrong?

Your current code works, you can try it here: http://jsfiddle.net/s4UyH/

You have something outside the example triggering another .click(), check for other handlers that are also triggering a click event on that element.
