    Default AC android app "bug" - back button when you've switched back to app

    Idiosyncrasy that is arguably not a bug. I don't know if the app can track your path within the app. It should, other apps can/do.

    Steps to reproduce :
    1. Open app.
    2. Go to favourites. Go to a favourite forum. Click a thread.
    3. Click home button (Android os). Click another app (e.g. Gallery).
    4. Click recent apps button (Android os). Click to switch back to AC application.
    5. So you're back to the thread view. Click the (os) back button. Click again.

      Expected : back button retraces your path in the app, thread view > forum thread list > fav forum list (top level).

      Actual: back exits AC app, takes you to Android home screen. Clicking AC app icon restarts the app at the top level (default "start screen" specified in preferences).

    I'm just in the habit of hitting back to close the app and opening it back up because of this, lol. Not sure why it would work this way on purpose.

    Yeah, I'm not sure it's a bug because the Android design guide says -- somewhere in there -- that the "back" button is about retracing your steps.
