Very Puzzling

I tired to do something and it turns out it works better than I hoped.  Since I don't understand it I wanted to know how it is working so I can duplicate it later.  Again, it works, but I would like the information about how it is working.

<A HREF="../support/clean.cfm?page=../support/purchase.cfm">Purchase</A>

<cfset Structclear(session)>
<cfset Structclear(SESSION)>
<cfset Structclear(Session)>

This is all I have for code.  Now here is the puzzling part.

1.  IE's status bar at the bottom left of the screen shows "Shortcut to purchase.cfm"  - Shouldn't it show clean.cfm?
2.  The clean.cfm does not show up as something you can hit the back button to go back to.  If you click the link it will go the clean.cfm, then to the purchase.cfm, but if you hit back it will go back to the link.  The reason I noticed this was because I didn't want my users getting caught in a infinate back loop if they try the back button.  granted there is no head, or body tags in clean.cfm.

Any one have any ideas as to why this is happening?

Yea I know that the structclear is repeated, I noticed that it is case sensitive.

1. No comments here.  Who knows.

2. Cean.cfm is not counted in the history, because this is a redirection page.  So, browser treats that sequence as:

        Link Page -----> [Clean.cfm - excluded] -----> Purchase.cfm

Sounds good enough for me.  Thanks
