I did another thread about this, but was only experiencing it on my website. I have done some investigating and have found this bug is troubling other stores currently live.
http://www.bigboxstore.com/ is one that is also facing this bug. This is not my store and I am in no way associated with it, I just found that this live store is experiencing the same problem.
Sort by Price is broken.
If you try to sort by price on any catalog page on 126.96.36.199 the total of items gets stuffed, it thinks there is only one item in that category, even though all products still display on the actual page.
If you have products over more than one page, switching to ‘Sort by Price’ removes the ability to go to the other pages. I find this to be a crippling bug, as most stores will want to sort by Price.
Bug report is being submitted, but beware of this.
