This is, unfortunately, a feature of your web browser. Some browsers simply
insist on refetching the page when you hit the back button. I'm not sure if
there's anything the sb_server.py-generated HTML can do to keep that from
happening (maybe there's some magic HTTP header that will stop it). I
suppose we could add a "target" attribute to the clues links to force the
clues pages to open in a new window. I'd personally find that a bit
annoying though. (My browser, Safari, doesn't suffer from reload-itis.) Is
there some way you can force the clues page to open in a new window (button
2 click, hold down a modifier key, whatever)? What about using a different
browser? If so, that would be a reasonable workaround until a more
generally acceptable solution can be found.
