[Mediawiki-l] Fwd: Dealing with corrupt pages

I have a hobby site that was attacked by Chinese language spammers awhile
MediaWiki: 1.18.0, PHP: 5.2.17 (cgi-fcgi), MySQL: 5.1.56, Apache: 2.2.x,
They left behind hundreds of pages with corrupt titles;
The MediaWiki delete function can't work on pages that can't be accessed,
so how can I clean up this mess?
How about using *phpMyAdmin*? I looked at the *page *table. Starting
around *page_id 442* you see hundreds of page titles that are massively
long numbers. I could delete each record, but am concerned that would
leave pointers and corrupt the database.
Any pointers would be appreciated.
Thanks in advance.
