Here's what "copy link location" gives me for a randomly picked link in 
the menu on the left in Firefox:

javascript:parent.frames["detail"].location.replace("infoitem.php?_sess=sess1255105042&id=24");

Here's what it gives me for the little expander widget of one of those 
links:

javascript:parent.frames["tree"].location.replace("infotree.php?_sess=sess1255105042&t=557&toggle=3#557");

Note the replace() calls.

What was that about developers mismanaging the back button?
