Ugh =) thought we had all of those covered by now, but this actually
seems to be different from the others.

The difference here is Epiphany has page cache enabled. That changes the
loading logic for the back/forward list quite a bit, and our port has a
number of small issues because of its unique implementation of scrolling
(since we want the WebView to be a "normal" GTK+ scrollable widget).

I'll investigate.
