Weirdness in the color of just-clicked links on an iPad.

When I click a link on my iPad (iOS 5.1.1, Safari) then hit the back button, I find that the color of the link text has changed from yellow to white. This makes it look like it's just bolded text, not a link. It's only after I refresh the page that the color changes to the lighter yellow of a link that has already been visited.
It happens whether I set my preferences to open links in a new window or not, and I notice that it happens on MeFi, AskMe, MeTa, Music and Podcast, but it doesn't happen on Projects, IRL or Jobs. It also doesn't happen when I use the Plain theme. IRL and Jobs appear to use a similar color scheme to the Plain theme. Projects is the only page that uses the Yellow(link)-White(hover)-Light Yellow(visited) color scheme that does complete the transition to light yellow without a manual refresh.
On several occasions I've clicked a link in a thread, gone back to read more of the thread, then had a really difficult time finding the link again because it didn't look like a link anymore. It's not really a big deal, and I am willing to consider the possibility that it's just me.
