last hurdle need help with my first ecart project :)

ok just tidying up a few things on the website im building (wanna say first great help so far since this is my biggest project to date so great learning experience)....but just a few issues to go......

im trying to work my head around the logic of orders being over-written....if a customer places an order, then gets through to paypal, makes the payment...BUT doesnt go to the websites "success page" (which was where i was intending of clearing all the sessions associated with the latest order) - lets say the customer devices to use the back button of the browser instead. pressing it twice would get them back to the confirm.php page which means they will never get to see the success.php page which then means those pesky sessions dont get cleared...and then if they decide to place a new order their previous order gets over written. this is where my logic stops - how can i prevent this, as we have no control of how the customer uses their web browser we cant force them not to use the browser back button. any suggestions on handling this?

im using paypal standards. but i cant get the client to make a paypal express account as i think that would incur them additional costs per transaction.

any thoughts on what i could do?
