I have a web part page that uses custom master page. Web part page has a web part that uses AJAX for some of its functionality. If I use custom master page that AJAX functionality does not work however, if I use v4.master (out of box master page) AJAX functionality works just fine.
I am not sure what my custom master page is missing. I tried to compare both master pages but nothing was apparent to me; maybe I am missing something.
scriptmanager, form and body elements are ditto in both the master pages.
Any pointers or suggestions on what I can check?

Mostly this issue will occur when ajax is not configured or script manager is not registered. Check below articles for probable problems and solutions

Second article nailed down my problem. SPWebPartManager server tag was outside form tag. I moved it inside form tag and everything is hunky dory.
