Have to agree about the front brake - you didn't mention if you were braking at that time, but whenever there is gravel, wet leaves, or just a slippery condition, avoid the front brake. (experience speaking here).

If you mean, use only the rear when there are poor traction conditions - I have to disagree. Braking with only the rear brake on wet leaves is about the fastest way to go down I can think of. My advice would be to keep the front wheel straight ahead and brake lightly with both front and rear when on wet leaves, loose gravel, what have you.
