I had a quick look and my guess is that testbrowsers `goBack()` method
is not working anymore with mechanize 2.x. At least mechanize 2.x
dropped support for some 'restore_stuff' (or similar) handler, which
might be used for goBack-functionality by the testbrowser.

For zc.catalog tests, however, this is easy to fix and I applied the fix
to zc.catalog trunk.

Is a new release desireable or can we live with the test failure for

Best regards,
