Hello WebKitters,

I am working on the QT 4.7.0 Port of WebKit demo browser. I am facing an
issue of multiple history items getting added when i load
http://www.hdfcbank.com. That is when i visit this page, there are two
entries in my back forward list that gets added into it as follows:


The second URL may be referred by the first one and hence gets added
separately into web history. When we press Browser Back, it tries to *again*
load the first page followed by the second one. This way you cannot come of
the this site by hitting single browser back button.

In Safari browser, it loads two URLs, but when i press Browser Back, it
comes to a blank page and stays there.

Only in Firefox browser this site working fine, it some how intelligently
filters out first entry and adds only the second entry to it. On pressing
browser back you will come back to the previously visited website.

My question here are:
a. WebKit-QT's demo browser implementation has to be matching with that of
Safari. Why is this behavior not consistent ?
b. Is there a way that we can avoid addition of multiple entries into
back-forward list for the sites belonging to the above category ? If yes
please post the pointers to this buglog.
