I'm going to try my very best to explain the issue I'm experiencing. When using the widget "woocommerce product categories", I select only "Only show children for the current category". Next, when I view the widget, I see the following:

enter image description here

The sub-categories for Video Games/Xbox 360 are shown as expected, but one additional sub-category seems to have snuck in: Second Hand. This category is not a sub-category of Xbox 360 and is a stand-alone category. If I switch on "show hierarchy" it shows as a category above Xbox Games, see the following:

enter image description here

This one additional (non-related) sub category seems to sneak into every single page I use the "woocommerce product categories" widget in. What is causing this and how can I remove it? Thanks in advance for your suggestions!

Anybody have any idea what could be causing this? I deleted the category and now another category fixes itself everywhere (called Bundles). Really need help to figure out whats going on here.. Thanks lots. –  Stoelwinder Sep 23 '13 at 6:23
