 I was developing a theme for a site earlier today and I stumbled upon a
 rather interesting bug. As usual, I deleted the old about page and created
 a new one. I added the "about" page template I had created, and to my
 amazement, it was still using the default page template. I removed the
 default page template in my templates folder and - out of all the things -
 it simply went back to using the default index page.

 After playing around with it for a while, I found a way to fix it.
 Apparently, the page template name and the filename can't be the same as
 the actual page name (simply renaming the template to about-page.php and
 the template name to "About Page" did the trick.)
