The accepted behaviors for contrib modules is that they have to namespace their hooks. Thus, ubercart should be using hook_ubercart_add_to_cart as a hook, not hook_add_to_cart.
There are other carts in Drupal... There are other "add to cart" modules. There are other functions called add_to_cart(). It's important to change all hooks to include the ubercart namespace.
