[theme-reviewers] Using home.php as a static homepage template

home.php is the blog posts index template file. front-page.php is the
template file to use for the site front page.

Old versions of Responsive Theme did not handle these templates correctly.
That has been fixed in the latest version, along with the query_posts()
usage (possibly still in development, and not yet released?), but the
incorrect handling in the older versions has doubtlessly been propagated to
derivative Themes.
