It's a cookie problem.  When you visit http://www.examplemotion.com and
click add to cart and then click any link it the nav the links in the
nav point to http://examplemotion.com (notice the absence of www).  The
cookie is per domain and www.examplemotion.com is different than
examplemotion.com depending on your settings.
