Is there a difference between 'mistrust' and 'distrust'?

Are these two words purely interchangeable? Or is there a difference in the way that these words are used?

If there is a difference, I can't see it - but would be very happy to have the difference pointed out to me.

If there is no difference, can anyone tell me why we have two words for exactly the same thing?
