Haven't done any testing but this DEFINITELY should not be happening.
That would be a horrible bug in WP.

Is it possible you're looking at the term_id and not the
term_taxonomy_id? AFAIK term_id is the one you should depend on, and
the one that matches the old 'category_id' field, whereas the
term_taxonomy_id is just used to match each particular use of a term
with a taxonomy. I might be wrong in assuming that term_id is the more
dependable of the two, but either way confusing them could be the
cause of your problems.
