This is an error report generated by the maintenance system for a leading online retailer. Can you figure out what it’s saying?

ERROR: The data you provided in your SOAP header does not match the data you provided in your XML header. As a result, we are unable to process this request. Please review your SOAP and XML headers and correct the error. Then, resubmit this feed. Your changes will appear with the next catalog build.
