Bug Description

Ubuntu Software Center 4.1.21, Ubuntu 11.10 beta 1
software-center trunk r2269

1. Navigate to "Games" > "Board Games".
2. Do a search, e.g. "chess".
3. Click the clear button in the search field.
4. Click Back.

What happens:
3. USC navigates forward to the "Games" screen.
4. USC goes back to the search results.

What should happen:
3. USC goes back to the "Board Games" screen.
4. USC goes back to the "Games" screen.

mpt,

It may pay to check this bug has been fixed correctly. The branch i submitted has been merged with trunk, however, there is some concern the fix is incorrect. Could you verify things are ok (or not).

Cheers

So the behavior I proposed when clicking Back is:
3. USC goes back to the "Board Games" screen.
4. USC goes back to the "Games" screen.

The behavior in 4.1.23.3 is:
3. USC goes back to the "Board Games" screen.
4. USC goes back to the search results.
5. USC goes back to the "Board Games" screen.
6. USC goes back to the "Games" screen.

So that's slightly different. Does it matter? I think it does, because #3 and #5 being the same may lead people to think they're stuck in a loop. However, it's a less noticable problem, and this particular bug is fixed. Thanks Matthew. I've reported the remaining problem as bug 854047.
