I don't know what could have caused this.  But it looks like for some 
reason the information in the portal_catalog is outdated.  Go to the 
Zope Management Interface, to portal_catalog, click on the Indexes tab 
and reindex the review_state index.

That is done in the Zope Management Interface in the portal_workflow 
tool.  The list there shows the policy for each portal_type globally.
