ASP session reset question

    I'm scratching my head a bit about why this happens - can anyone shed any
    light?

    When a user goes through our online purchasing system and their session
    information gets recorded, when proceeding to our next page and then
    clicking the back button in their browser, the session variables are reset.
    Its not that the session is timing out or being forced to end when visiting
    the next page (or when reloading the previous page), but regardless, the
    variables are reset.

    This is a problem because during the purchasing procedure several items from
    the order go missing, meaning the purchase doesn't go through properly.

    Any ideas why a simple back button press in the browser by a user would
    cause a session to be reset?

    Thanks very much for any help.
