I can remember a bug that could do this to you, but I think it was
fixed before 0.27.  And crashed database tables can cause this, but
you have already checked for that.  You may have to delve deep and
turn on the database logging options to see what queries are being
done and then run those queries manually yourself to see what the
results are.  You should probably run find_orphans.py and see what
problems it can see in the database - but until you know what is going
on, I would not recommend letting it do any cleanups.
