    1 After trying to understand the current behavior (what is is supposed to do) for a pretty long time, I was (gladly) pointed at this ticket.

    33Here're my 0.2 cents:

    5 If one selects (in "as it is"-UI) "A static page" and selects nothing, then WP automatically resets it to "Your latest posts" without any further notice why this happened. When I got a {{{home.php}}} and a {{{front-page.php}}} file in my theme, then I'd expect WP to use them by default, not only if I've created and selected a page for it. This simply isn't needed in every case (front page with just a title and a searchform for e.g.), so why force it? Or at least tell - in some admin notice - that there has to be a real site instead of just moving to a setting the user never made by himself.
