confirming that this is on the branch also with 2000101008 builds.

I also see that the item are indeed entered properly into the global history file. So I guess
we're messing up at the stage where we compare the links on the current page to the entries
in that file.
Waterson, is this sort of thing your bag?

This may also have something to do with non-alphanumeric characters. Take a look
at
http://dir.yahoo.com/Society_and_Culture/Food_and_Drink/Drinks_and_Drinking/Alcohol_and_Spirits/Cocktails/Recipes/Mudslide/
; click on the last link (Mail Archive, the: frozen mudslide). It contains an
'@', and when you press back the link stays blue. But, all the other links on
the page are marked as visited.
