I've never understood why the past tense of hang when it refers to the capital punishment is 'hanged', but 'hung' when it refers to the position.

I think it's that way to prevent confusion. Imagine:

Judge: Did you carry out the sentence?

Sherrif: Yes, sir, the bandit was well hung.

Judge: I don't care about that. Did you carry out the sentence?
