Default Bevel Problem

Yet another problem from me For some reason, almost always when I use the bevel tool, it creates really weird geometry instead of just beveling the edges. Here is an example of what bevel on original settings did to an object. Even with a basic cube it creates geometry similar to this. Does anyone have an idea as to why this is happening? It's really puzzling to me.

K, I lowered it and it works well for some things, but bevel is sometimes a pest, eh? I mean, you use it on geometry that is even a little unusual and it makes a bunch of little messes.
