Yahoo/Overture: Rejected (Back Button)

Can anyone make sense of this?

Just set up account with Yahoo and sponsored various keywords.

They've all been rejected because apparently the site I'm promoting has disabled the back button on people's browsers which is not allowed to be done.

I built the site myself and know for a fact that I did nothing of the sort - no disabling script at all.

It's normal for the back button not to work when a new window or tab is opened, so what are they talking about?

Any help much appreciated,

Well if a completely new window or tab opens then that (window/tab) for the webpage has no history to go back to.
