bug: "back" navigation from visualforce page broken

The built-in "back" button in salesforce1 does not work properly when viewing a custom visualforce page; instead it brings up the Publisher "+" icon.


Here's our clickpath; detailed image to follow:


1. In our case, we start with a mobile card.


2.  Tapping on the mobile card ignores any href within the card and reloads it fullscreen (this is arguably a bug - see this forum post).


3.  On that reloaded frame, the "back" arrow works fine.


4.  We then tap from the reloaded mobile card into a (custom visualforce) detail view of the desired object.


5.  It is on this page that the "back" arrow totally breaks down.  At first tap, it brings up the Publisher "+" icon.  At second tap, it jumps navigation back 3 steps.



Update 12/16/13:  partner support has recognized the bug & escalated to dev, case # 10009288.
