It's better to just instantiate your own WP_Query object.
$custom_loop = new WP_Query( array(
'category_name' => $page_category_name,
'showposts' => get_option('posts_per_page')
while ( $custom_loop->have_posts() ) $custom_loop->the_post();
// normal loop functions here
That way, the normal $wp_query isn't touched at all, and things that
depend on it don't break.
