With Static home page enabled, Posts page won't use a custom page template.

I seem to have stumbled on a bug in WP 2.6.1.
When making a Page in WP, you can specify a page template to base it off of, as outlined http://codex.wordpress.org/Pages#Page_Templates.
If I make a page (lets call it Blog) and then specify a custom template for it say My_Blog_Template then browse to the page slug for the Blog, the custom template is viewed just fine.
BUT, if I go to the wp-admin/options-reading.php page and
- select that I would like a to use a static home page and then specify one (NOT Blog)
- and then specify the Blog page with the My_Blog_Template for the Posts page
The Blog page no loner picks up My_Blog_Template, but rather defaults to the normal template hierarchy.
What I'm trying to figure out is:
- Was index.php designed to be used as the "latest posts" template? (therefore removing the need for my "blog" custom template? I don't think this is the case, as it is the fallback for ALL template hierarchy.
- Is there a bug where the Post page won't read a custom template as specified in the Manage Page admin screen? This is what I believe the situation is...
