Actually I tried the site yesterday and it failed so have just done it again
to make sure I wasn't dreaming. I didn't reply to the list as I was not
sure of what to suggest.
Today it took longer to reproduce the error but I could get it to happen in
the following way.
>From sale page select "Authority Praying" (sku: 1000404) product then Add to
Cart. From Cart press the Back button the select the Return to Sale page
link from lower right. Select another product like "Only Men: (sku:1000405)
then Add to Cart.
At this point you are in the Cart and both products look ok. If you change
the quantity of the first product from 1 to 2 then press recalculate the
pricing changes in a way you don't expect. i.e. it gets much cheaper and
discount goes up totals are incorrect.
Unfortunately I am unable to help any further but I do like what you are
trying to do!
