previous card issue

I have a stack with several cards named Welcome, Connection and NotAuditEnabled. I start out at the Welcome card and the user clicks the Next button which does a go to card 'Connection'. On the Connection card I have a preOpenCard handler which does the following:
if the short name of the previous card is "Welcome" then
... put empty into several fields ...
When a certain condition happens on this card I do a go to card 'NotAuditEnabled'. This card explains some details about the error condition and allows the user to click a Previous button to go back to the Connection card and try again. The Previous button does a go to card 'Connection'.
The problem is that the preOpenCard code shown above /always/ seems to believe that the previous card is 'Welcome' and not the card that I just came from.
Am I misunderstanding something here? Does 'previous' not mean the previously viewed card?
I was able to get this to work the way I want by using push card & pop card.
