... and the "revno:111954.1.97" was a reference to trunk revno:112051.

The fact that the commit whose comment is making that reference is itself
from a non-mainline branch suggests that the reference may actually
not be garbled, but rather be from an obsolete context.

The "111954.1.97" revno is actually correct relative to the "111954.1.4"
commit and Handa's "work branch" (where it would have been 111954+4=11958;
if you do "bzr branch trunk -r 111954.1.4 handa-work" and then do
"bzr log -r 111954.1.97 --show-ids handa-work", this starts to become clear).

(for the git people who are probably having a major WTF at this: it's
 perhaps on par with abbreviating git sha1sums down to just the first
 few hexits)

"'tis an ill wind that blows no minds."
