 Today I also came into this problem. On our website there are several
 sticky posts.

 I tried to do custom loop (posts on page) with WP_Query(). But there were
 not only posts related to arguments, but also all sticky posts. I found
 caller_get_posts and set it true and everything was OK. But it is not very
 user-friendly solution, for all my loops I have to add this parameter...
 Maybe ignoring sticky posts for custom loops? But on the other side I
 understand its current behaviour... But for many users it is not very
 clear on the first look...
