Convert Lead Publisher Action

Hi All,

I have experience some very strange behaviour. I have created an object-specific action and added it to the Lead page layout. On the chatter feed / publisher i can see that button and also on SF1 as intended. 

The problem is, when I create a lead, it gets converted immediately. The user does not click the action to convert, the lead just gets converted. The standard button is not on the page. The lead convert action calls a Visualforce page to perform the conversion. When I remove the lead convert action from the layout, the lead does not get converted immediately when it is created.

I am just wondering if anyone has observed this behaviour before or has any idea where it might be coming from. I have observed this on two separate unrelated Orgs and haven't been able to figure it out yet.

Could you please share the code to the convert action function, I understand you are performing this action using VF page.
