I disagree.. let's say you have a list of local links in your file, e.g.
in a table of contents or something like that. Now if you click on one of
these links, it'll take you somewhere else in the file, and the only way to
go back is by scrolling back and forth and trying to find where the heck you
came from... I *do* consider this a bug! Not keeping the local link in the

history list is ok, but one outh to be able to go back.

Cheers, Chris
