I made a custom template for the blog section of my page. I even set post page to Blog.

I created a custom post type called Page Content and the posts are retrieved in the #feature div. But the main posts (written in the Posts panel) are not being shown (#blog div)

Any suggestions to solve this?

EDIT: I just saw this in the webkit inspector:

Fatal error: Cannot use object of type WP_Query as array in /home/alex/www/wpa/wp-includes/query.php on line 2555

(I'm using the Starkers theme)

It seems like the variable $posts is already used in the query.php files (not very sure).

Changing #posts to $custom_posts solved the problem.

Ah, I misssed that. $posts is global variable that is reference to $wp_query->posts so by assigning something to it you are breaking main Loop. –  Rarst Jan 25 '11 at 8:44

The line referenced in that error is quite simple - it assigns next post from array of retrieved posts to field of current post.

$this->post = $this->posts[$this->current_post];

According to error instead of array WP_Query->posts field contains WP_Query object (or maybe reference to one) for some reason. I can't quite come up with scenario why this might happen and this is not a normal query mechanics.

Does it work with your custom featured idea removed from template? I mean can you say definitively that your custom secondary loop is or is not the reason for error?
