I'm posting this after an IRC conversation with Elijah Lofgren

I used the reorganize function in the CMS to move my home page to the end so "Home" is the last page not the first. SS keeps putting a home page at the beginning so now I have 2 of them. I tried renaming the new one to what I want to be the first page, but it keeps adding a home page if it doesn't see one already as the first page. My pages are: page1, page2, page3, Home. After I reorganized them like this I ended up with: Home, page1, page2, page3, Home. I tried renaming the new home page to "test" to see if renaming it would work. Now I have: Test, Home, page1, page2, page3, Home.

Environment: SS v2.0.1 PHP v5.2.0 Apache v2

The workaround Elijah helped me with was to rename the page I want to be the home with a Page name of "Home". This got it back to having a url of /home/ then I renamed it again with what I wanted and chose the option not to change the URL. This seems to work so far. Elijah said:

"I think it might be good to make post a bug saying that the requirement of a page with a URL of 'home' needs to be explicit (by not allowing the 'home' page to be deleted in the 1st place) or there should not be a requirement on a 'home' page at all."

I agree and so I am posting this. Thanks.

Perhaps in the behaviour tab we could have a checkbox - "this page is the homepage". If you checked this, then it would deselect the previous homepage.
