Page Expired Problem

I have a JSP application. The browser used is IE 6.0

Sometimes, when the Back button is pressed, "Page Expired" message is displayed. This does not happen always.

What could be the reason?

Thanks in advance

I think that's IE's way of saying the page was generated using a POST (rather than a GET) request.
