[wp-hackers] Trouble With Custom Sidebars

Howdy hackers,

I'm having trouble integrating custom sidebars in different templates.
It seems no matter what, the default sidebar is called every time.

Ex1: I delete get_sidebar() altogether. The default sidebar.php file
is still called and displayed.
Ex2: I add a parameter 'custom' -> get_sidebar('custom') on
page-{slug}.php. Default sidebar.php is still called, AND
sidebar-custom.php is also called.

Obviously I just wanted sidebar-custom.php to be displayed. What the heck?

Thanks for any insight you can provide!
