I don't know the specifics of the problem, however the general
approach here strikes me as a bit nutty. :)

Basically, you're putting Posts onto a Page and then making that Page
into the Front. This is a bit of a backwards thinking sort of
approach, considering that the default behavior is to put the latest
Posts onto the Front by default. Seems like you'd be better served by
customizing the main query instead and not using a Page on Front at
