Mini Cart Item Value Incorrect on Home Page

That's exactly what I mean. You can see for yourself on the website, the bottom of the left hand column is the Shape5 Column Cart. Showing the same problem.

I'm going to build a test site tomorrow and try it. As an alternative, I've just, this minute, tried out VM2, looks good, (hammers my server though!) but the lack of quantity/volume pricing makes it unuseable for me in this instance.

Ok - heres how to re-create. Problem appears to be reversed, but still there...

1) Setup a new J15 installation, with sample data.
2) Installed VM 1.9 with sample data.
3) Installed latest products module to show on home page.
4) For clarity, deleted all products except Chain Saw.
5) Give Chain saw multiple pricing $150 standard, $100 Wholesale.
6) Wholesale price has a minimum qty of 2 and max of 1000
7) Setup a user and put in Wholesale Shopper group.

1) Login as wholesale user in front end.
2) Add 1 x Chainsaw to basket, this should be charged at $150 because it's below min qty of 2.
3) Go to home page, mini cart shows $100 - as it should.
4) View the Chainsaw product, mini cart shows $150 - incorrect

You can try this at:
User: test1
Pass: password


Update: I've just added the standard virtuemart cart as well.

Now on the home page:
Shape5 Cart shows $150
Virtuemart Cart shows $100

There's definitely something weird going on!


Another update:

I switched the order of the modules on the left.

If Virtuemart Cart comes after Latest Products it shows $100, if it comes before Latest Products, it shows $150.
I've now added a virtuemart cart before and after latest products to demonstrate the issue at the URL above.

One shows $150 one shows $100.
