if I have a bean that is called from a jsp and has the call

        if (!(cookie.tempContains("loggedin"))){
                }catch(IOException e){
                    log.write("Problem launching"+e.getMessage());

and in my jsp 

<jsp:useBean id="mybean" class="actv.login.PickDir" />
    mybean.init( request,  response);

However we have found that some versions of ie if they mess with the back
button and up with messed up pages (described below).

1) how can i fix it?

2) Then would you say it is not safe to redirect from a bean that you have
pass a refrence to http response?
