Chris, if you use the "normal" navigation system, that shouldn't happen either.
What you're describing is probably the result of two things coming together: the way you entered this forum (which is why I asked that question in my first response), and the fact that this is a rather special forum. Three of our forums, those in the "Ron's World" category don't belong to any specific MetaCategory, but rather appear in EVERY MetaCat. Even then, if you enter one of these floating forums from standard navigation, Athena should be able to keep track of what MetaCat you were in. And it certainly shouldn't be happening in Tech Talk forums.
