It certainly looks like a bug to me.

This is the section with the problem:

		my $cname = $Config->{CookieName} || 'MV_SESSION_ID';
		$Scratch->{have_cookie} = $Tag->read_cookie($cname)
			and delete $Scratch->{tried};
	[if scratch have_cookie]
	[elsif scratch tried]
     		[L CART_MSG1]You must have cookies set to leave the basket. Check 
out now or forever lose your shopping cart.[/L]
		[set tried]1[/set]
		[bounce href="[area ord/basket]"]

spiders have no session data so "tried" never gets set and they keep 
getting bounced back to the basket.

Banning spiders from the basket is your best bet.
