This is the expected (if not necessarily desired) behavior.  With 
the use of sessions, state is no longer passed exclusively with 
HTML form variables.  Rather this state is mostly kept 
server-side in PHP sessions.  Hence, the use of the "back" 
browser button will cause the the previous page to re-load,
but using the newly updated state information.

I suspect that ACID will have to provide explicit "back" links to
ease navigation.
