 When upgrading WP 2.2.3 to either v2.3 or v2.3.1, most of the posts get
 de-categorized : posts that used to be in categories such as "Blog",
 "Misc", "Web/Tech" appear to be "Uncategorized" after the upgrade.

 I've run the upgrade from 2.2.3 with all plugins disabled and even tried a
 forced DB upgrade. The first time wp-admin/upgrade.php is run, the result
 page doesn't load completely. Refreshing the page outputs those errors :


 There's something wrong with the upgrade script. All the categories have
 unique names. Here are the catgories in 2.2.3 :


 Here are the categories once upgraded to 2.3.1 :


 The same happens with 2.3
