Answering my own question: I understand it would make sense, if the
current version named "trunk" will be renamed to 1.10.0 (or whatever
version number the next release will get). In that case the issue will
be listed as fixed for the 1.9 branch on 1.9.5 and for the 1.10 branch
since 1.10.0.

XXX was retrieved using --show-item=revision. Since that produced unexpected trailing whitespaces the script command resulted in [...] -rXXX :YYY [...] which obviously caused an error message which was hard to debug since I didn't immediately get the idea that the trailing whitespaces might cause the script error I saw.
