Orphaned Tasks in Confluence (hosted)

After editing and deleting various pages in a space (my personal space), the Task Report macro still lists tasks that were defined with the Task List macro on the deleted pages or Task List items that were deleted from existing pages. Furthermore, it shows duplicates of those tasks. I've configured it just to show tasks assigned to me.

How can I clear out all these orphaned/ghost tasks and start "fresh"??
