Interceptors not running if there is no handler

I spent the last 2 days tracking down this bug, but it appears that if you create a view without creating a handler for it. The interceptor prevent() is not run, now this might sound like it is not a bug. But I have to ask if this interceptor is used to setup certain information prior to the view being displayed, should it still run as if there is an event being run?

Hmm, I don’t think so as there is no event that actually executes but a view is dispatched.

Yeah I thought about it some more, and I am thinking that I should be maybe using the preProcess event rather than the preEvent for this task.
