“Error” when adding to cart for first time, but not second.

Hi All,

I’m having a weird and constantly repeatable error.  Whenever someone tries to add a product to their cart for the first time, they get the Ajax popup spinner, then they get a small grey box that just says “Error”. If they click outside of that box and try to add the item to their shopping cart again, it all works ok.

In the logs we get a 302 error like this on the first failure: - - [21/May/2013:20:36:47 +1000] “GET /ajax/index/add/uenc/aHR0cDovL3d3dy5tb2JpbGVtYWZpYS5jb20vcGhvbmUtY292ZXJzL2JhdHRlcnktY2FzZXMvaXBob25lLTQvZ29kY2hhcmdlci1pcGhvbmUtNC1iYXR0ZXJ5LWNoYXJnZXItY2FzZS13aGl0ZS5odG1sP19fX1NJRD1V/product/127/ HTTP/1.1” 302 5 “” “Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; Intel Mac OS X 10_8_3) AppleWebKit/537.31 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/26.0.1410.65 Safari/537.31” “-”

When the user tries a second time, it works fine. Any ideas what is causing this? As you might guess, this is causing us quite a lot of pain :(

Thanks for your help!
