Default Chpt 3: Outlets - Triple Alert Box

Perhaps I'm doing something wrong, but when i complete the first exercise from Chapter 3, Outlets & Actions, the finished product pops up an Alert box three times.

1. I run the application and enter my name.

2. I click OK.

3. The Alert box pops (bounces) up and displays Hello Bob. It does this twice in rapid succession.

4. Then I click Done in the Alert box, and the Alert disappears, the keyboard disappears on the iPhone GUI . . . and the Alert pops back up.

If nobody else has noticed, it must be my problem. However, if anyone could explain to me why the Alert box shows up several times, I would greatly appreciate that.

It just drives me nuts when I follow an example, something goes wrong* and no explanation can be found anywhere.

Thanks for any help with this.

*At least, to me it seems that displaying an Alert box three times is wrong.
