jsf back problem

I use jsf1.1 and experienced problem with back button.
At first I solved that by  making the page reloaded when the hidden field for commandLinks isn't empty (in javascript onload) and that works (kind of) but often, after a while of back and action my web application hang.
Whatever I change in select lists or inputs after clicking on buttons or commands links is lost and old values are displayed.
I think you have a point from this what is a problem.

Is there any solution to fix this problem or any other approach to avoid this.

It looks like this is a known feature/bug of JSF http://forum.java.sun.com/thread.jspa?threadID=478928&messageID=2513970

A possible solution might be "Webflow Navigation Manager Framework" http://www-128.ibm.com/developerworks/web/library/wa-webflow/

Also, here is a nice simple example of back button rules for jsf http://jsf.iatp.org.ua/navigation/jsf_navigation.html

Thanks for response
I managed some trick solution (cause of speed) but I will now look at WNMF cause it's looks like good system aproach.
