i'm using wp_list_pages() to generate my nav menu, and it works fine, but it does not recognize my "Blog" as the current_list_item.  The Homepage is not the blog it is a static page.  The blog page uses a template called "blog.php" which calls the 'index.php'  (or blog) page using the line below.

load_template(TEMPLATEPATH . '/index.php');

I know there was a current_list_bugfix plugin a while ago, is that still in effect or has wordpress addressed the problem?

wp_list_pages list pages in your system, your blog is not really a page, create a default page and point to it as your blog page, it should then show up on your wp_list_pages()
