#14852: Newly published pages automatically becoming static home page

     Type:  defect (bug)  |      Status:  new            
 Priority:  normal        |   Milestone:  Awaiting Review
Component:  General       |     Version:  3.0.1          
 Severity:  major         |    Keywords:                 
 I have a few basic static pages (Home, About Us, Contact Us, etc.).  Home
 was the first static page created.  Immediately afterwards, I set it as
 the static home page in Settings->Reading.  This was working well.  I then
 created a new page (About Us).  The home page now displays About Us, even
 though the Home page's permalink remains at the root url.

 Steps to reproduce:
 1.) Create page
 2.) Set homepage to "static page", selecting the page from #1
 3.) Create any number of new pages
 4.) On the front-end of the blog, navigate to the root url
 5.) The newest page created will appear

 This is on a fresh 3.0.1 install.  I do not believe it to be an issue with
 templates, etc.

 If it helps, I'm happy to supply the blog's URL, username, and password on

 Thanks for any help!
