Strange behavior, products and categories dissapear

I have worked for a new design for a while and it is starting to look as I want on the front page, but now when I wanted to move into the structure I noticed some strange behavior.
I then reverted into the default theme to see if my CSS (haven’t done any template changes) had messed something up, but to my surprise it didn’t work for default either.

I several categories in the first level
Then on the first category in the first level I have nested my categories.
Structure looks like this

Root catalogue (named store)
Category 1
Category 2
Category 3
About store
Legal Disclamer

If I press the category “shop” I get the 3 shop categories in the left side as I should get, but if I press any of the sub categories (have 1 demo product in each category all enabled) I dont get any product displayed and the left category navigation dissapears

Any help on this is must appriciated and desperatly needed as I am now stuck, cant continue with my store as I don’t get any products displayed.
Running shop localy for testing and faster codeing and developing purpose, so can’t give any link I’m afraid.
