I believe this is a config issue. Triple check all the settings are the same in the Category admin and take special care while looking at the Design tab and also in Display settings. Is Anchor should be set to No and all the inputs related to Design should be blank.

  • ;-) all settings were exactly the same. the only thing that worked was to delete the categories and re-create them... now it does what it should do
