Hi Frank

Negative on that. Definitely not connecting to the wrong database.
Both catalogs have been in production for a long time and are
otherwise working very well and are regularly updated busy commerce

Also the value is not in the database it is set in a page and sent to
the component.

So I am still stumped how session data from one catalog migrated
momentarily to another catalog.
