Different Includes Based on Logic?

I am currently trying to load different include files based on some simple logic using InSection() but it's not working at ALL. In my main Layout/ template, I am including a file called SideBarChooser, which then has this logic inside it:

	<% if InSection(solutions) %>
	<% include SideBarSolutions %>
	<% else_if InSection(clients) %>
	<% include SideBarClients %>
	<% else_if InSection(industries) %>
	<% include SideBarIndustries %>
	<% else_if InSection(newsroom) %>
	<% include SideBarNewsroom %>
	<% else %>
	<% include SideBar %>
	<% end_if %>

In some cases ALL the SideBars are being painted to the screen; in others, it just plain doesn't work. Anyone have any idea what's wrong with this?

Are any of these pages children of pages in that list? If so then InSection() could return true multiple times.
