Of course I found the solution 15 minutes after posting this.  The
solution was to replace the following in my usertag:




The shipping tag saves what's currently in $Vend::Items to a temporary
variable.  Then it pushes all the items that are in the carts specified
by the cart parameter in to $Vend::Items which can be used for
manipulation.  Then at the end it overwrites $Vend::Items with what is
in the temporary variable.
