I'm getting really frustrated with the way wordpress handles category and post ID's. It's wreaking havok on my blog.
Alright, perhaps not havok, but it seems like something that could, and should, be fixed in the next bugfix/update.
It seems like every post/page/category is assigned an ID... or rather they are assigned a term ID. They all share the same system.
The problem comes when something is deleted. It shows an ID as one number when it really isn't that number. Not only that but it starts to create very strange behavior from the loop, such as duplicate and missing posts.
If I wasn't afraid that it would destroy my blog, I would go into the database and manually reassign every single ID!
Is there perhaps a plugin that allows a user to perform such an operation reliably?
I love wordpress to death but this latest version is driving me bonkers.

Down below the news announcement, there are several different posts. The post of Ad Tactics keeps getting duplicated... or rather, shown in place of other posts for no good reason.
It's not the theme either, changing it to the default will result in the same issue.
I know I can't be the only one to run into this issue. Does anyone has a suggestion for a fix?
