Excess "Uncategorized" posts in post2cat table

I notice that I have a tonne of posts categorised as "Uncategorized" (as on the Manage Categories page), even though I don't have any posts categorised as "Uncategorized" any more (and indeed when you go to my category archive for uncategorised, there's no posts either). It's bothering me since I'm using a tag cloud plugin.
I had a look in post2cat table and the phantom uncategorized posts are listed in there. To see what these actually are, I went to
and entered in these post ids from post2cat where category_id = 1.
I got an error, of course, since the post wasn't there but I could see the preview window showing images that I'd uploaded to those posts which were once categorized with "Uncategorized".
Any idea what's going on? I'll try and investigate further.
