And what happens when he uses the browser's back button? Don't you end 
up executing the db operations again? That's why I don't like that 
"pattern". It fixes one particular symptom but not the actual issue. IMO 
only invalidating the continuation helps. But then I wonder how one 
could claim "continuations are fixing the browser's back button" since 
you actually disable it. I might overlook something but it seems both 
can't address the issue completely.
