Back button causes limiting?

I just saw some strange stuff in my logs and it only makes sense if
pressing the back button creates a new request on an iPad.  So if an
iPad user presses the back button 5 times quickly, they will have
generated 5 requests in a very short period of time which could turn
on rate limiting if so configured.  Has anyone else noticed this?
