No you should be fine.

Seaside only stores about 20 back button clicks.

The only problem you might have is if you get a huge number of  
sessions but in your application that may not be a problem.

Just as a note. The session time out only applies to sessions that  
have had no activity for that period of time. So I don't think you  
would need an 8 hour timeout. A 30 minute or 1 hour timeout might be
