Press and RELEASE the back button. The camera will acquire focus on the target.
Fire the shutter.
Move to a new target.
Press the back button. Nothing happens. The camera does not acquire focus on the new target.
Press the shutter button half way and release.
Press the back button. The camera now acquires focus on the new target.

It turns out that if an image was on the LCD display it had to be cleared first before the back button would re-engage. Once I turned Image Review off so that the LCD did not show the image after taking a photo then the back button reacquired focus each time it was pressed.
Ah, nice one. I think I have mine set at only a second or two.
