I get a product output acct and category valuation acct error when posting initial inventory

I have set up real-time inventory valuation and have most elements working properly. However, when I try to enter initial inventory counts for my intermediate inventory products (in between raw goods and finished goods) I always get the following error:

"output account of this product and valuation account of the category are the same"

The input, output, and valuation accounts are all coming from the product category definition and the two "offending" accounts are not the same. The valuation account is set to "Intermediate" and the output account is set to "Revolving." I have other categories that work just fine (though with different accounts), but this one seems to be problematic. Is there something elsewhere that would be interfering with these definitions?

Please help!
