[midas] designMode still active after clicking Back.

1. go to URL
2. click the link "First example - View Example"
3. edit some text - it works
4. click Back
5. now you can edit the original page too!

The document (URL) is editable.

Going from an editable document to an non-editable document should
turn off designMode.

Bug occurs in Mozilla nightly trunk build 2003-06-12-22 on Linux

Shift-reload on the original page did not help either - I had to close the tab
and then revisit the page in a new tab to get out of edit mode.
Also, visiting other pages when in "edit-mode" made them all editable.

happens on win2k as well and on 1.4 branch.

From the above URL:

    Once document.designMode has been set for the document object in a window,
all documents in that window for that domain will remain editable.

    Edit the document in a separate window or contained in an IFRAME.

Not a good solution! Any way it still happens in build 2004021808. But it is not
just pressing back that does it, the browser appears to be stuck in edit mode.
