It sounds like Norton is blocking the session cookie from being passed 
from the non-secure page to the secure page, and so they get isolated 
and end up with their own separate session IDs.

Try commenting out this line from catalog.cfg and see if it helps:
ScratchDefault  mv_no_session_id  1

Doing the above will, of course, stick session IDs into all your URLs, 
but we can concentrate on a better workaround once it's determined that 
the above works.
