This would probably be caused by the no-cookie-catcher code:

[if type=explicit compare="q{[read-cookie MV_SESSION_ID]}"]
[elsif scratch tried]
You must have cookies set to leave the basket. Check out now or forever
lose your shopping cart.
[set tried]1[/set]
[bounce href="[area ord/basket]"]

or you somehow have got some bounce calling [history-scan].

Obviously this is not pervasive or noone would be able to use
