Description

After adding a new page template to my theme, the "Template" drop-down on the add/edit page screen disappeared. The "Parent" and "Order" form inputs still appeared, but there was no reference to the "Template" drop-down form element in the "view source" HTML of the page.

The new template file had been added to my theme directory via pull from a git repo that my collaborator had pushed the file to. The "Template" drop-down worked fine on his exact copy of the theme.

I changed the theme for my site to twentyeleven and then immediately back to my custom theme, and the "Template" drop-down began appearing again. I did this at the suggestion of these pages:

Evidently this intermittent bug has appeared since before Wordpress 3.

I could not reproduce the bug in my test install. Does it still occur for you in the latest version of WordPress?
