I am importing using Magmi
The categories are created on import and an example is

Russian Dolls/Nesting Dolls

I would expect the url to be

but OFTEN and at seemingly at RANDOM the resultant url ends up as


The product is however correctly allocated to the intended category in the front end of the site.
I am aware that this is the same URL which would be written if no category was allocated.
No errors are reported on import.

Any help would be appreciated

Hello there! The best possible solution for this is to re-index the categories. That should hopefully fix the issue.
