This is certainly strange. In BSB, Shankara spends considerable time arguing that brahman is also the material cause.

Now all you are saying is that a dependant (on brahman) pradhAna is the material cause whereas for sAmkhya, pradhAna is independent. (If that is the only difference, wonder why so many polemics against the sAmkhyas). This looks like a position that of Madhwa/dvaita would be very comfortable with!
