THe previous page's Y position is not restored when clicking on the

Example: Go to, move into the middle of the page,
click/visit a link, then go "Back". You'll end at the top of,
not in the middle.

Other note:
Be !! sure !! that the cache does mark incomplete loaded documents/files, and
that error codes like 4xx (405 etc) are not cached (as documents... the server
