There are two distinct sections to the navigation_box transaction.  One
where the session variables are read and a second where they are used. To
minimize conflicts, the what is now a single tranaction should be split 
into two separate transactions.

Any thought as to how to do that?  If navigation_box were broken into 
two separate methods, say nav_box1 and nav_box2, how does nav_box1 
commit itself and then transfer control and data (a session variable 
snapshot) to nav_box2 as a new transaction? 

I would guess that if nav_box1 redirects to nav_box2 a new transaction 
is initiated and the old one committed.  Is that correct?  And is there 
a better way to get the same effect?
