Note that this is expected behavior. When you hit the back button in your browser, the entire page needs to loaded first, before the script manager can pick a history point that needs to be restored. This is why you get a full page load first, before an AJAX postback that updates to the required history point. Note that this is standard MS AJAX behavior and is not directly related to RadControls for ASP.NET AJAX.
