Migrating TFS 2008->2010: Where are my links?!

I've recently been asked to write a simple tool that checks if all links between TFS WorkItems and ChangeSets have migrated successfully from TFS 2008 to TFS 2010, and migrates missing links if necessary.

The interesting thing was why did that task even arise. At that moment, it seemed that the tool that migrates projects from TFS 2008 to 2010 somehow looses all links. Yes, the tool said migration was completed, but there were no links. Later, by the time I completed the tool, the links had somehow got to the destination. Autopsy has shown that after the tool had completed, it started a Windows service, which apparently completed the migration in background.

Those guys in TFS team... are they mad?
