Hi Tom,

I use a Mac G4 running Panther previously. Tiger now. and Safari  
which I use as my default Browser. I run 3 interchange sites now  
based on Interchange 5.2 but previously 4.8.9 all closely based on  
the foundation catalog. On Debian Linux "Woody" and have seen no  
"empty cart" problems with Safari at all.

I suggest you look closely at the HTML output from the apparently  
empty cart and at the session information.

The only time I have got an empty cart is when I miss-configured  

Hope this helps you track the problem.
