If you use a selection rule to override the front page using the standard Drupal string of "<front>", the selection rule is borked when it's displayed, e.g.:
This panel will be selected if Node being viewed is type "Category", and Current path is "&amp;lt;front&amp;gt;".

Instead of using a path how about using some PHP

$homepage = FALSE;
if (drupal_is_front_page()) {
  $homepage = TRUE;
return $homepage;

this should work i think...

@travisc: the selection rule does work correctly, the bug is in relation to how the summary information is displayed.

This would be a CTools issue.

I think it's a very common use case that people want to select on "is this the front page" or not. How about we provide a selection rule so we don't have to use PHP code?

I feel silly for never having thought about this rule!
