I have routine to automatically go back a page when a function is called. It works nicely in the desktop version of Chrome on my JQM application. But on iOS 6.01 (iPhone 4 and iPad 2) the history.back() does not work. I verified that the function is called with an alert statement just before the call to history.back.
files: jqm is jquery.mobile-1.2.0.min.js and jq is jquery-1.8.2.min.js
