Original labels: Type-Defect, Priority-Medium

Original description

<b>What steps will reproduce the problem?</b>
1.add mutliple categories in a hierarchy
2.create posts and associate only a leaf-level category with the post
3.go to Arras Theme Options, Home tab any region click the Stickied Posts/Categories pulldown
5.check a parent level category (should have posts with leaf-level categories associated)
6. save changes and launch site
7. no posts display in the associated region.

<b>What is the expected output? What do you see instead?</b>
category selection for inclusion in a region should behave just like selecting a parent category in a side-bar widget.  All posts with that category as a parent should be included.  The WordPress standard is to automatically treat all parents of an associated category as also selected.  The value of this functionality for Arras is that I only need to choose a parent category for inclusion in a home page region and I can be confident that all children will be included automatically - even those I create in the future - without updating the Home settings. 

<b>What versions of WordPress and Arras Theme are you using?</b>
WP: 3.2.1

<b>Please include the link to your installation.</b>
