It fires events *only* on the layer that the selected feature belongs
to. Not in the topmost layer that the control creates, but in one of
the layers the control is configured with.

But, as Chris pointed out, the code is subject to change.

Apply the patch to a current trunk version of OpenLayers (see [1] for
instructions). Have a look at the example [2] to see how to use.
