This is, unfortunately, going to keep happening more frequently as the PR 
numbers get higher and the corresponding Trac tickets get less sparse.

The way I'd like to address it is to change the format of our commit message to 
namespace Trac tickets differently; instead of just "#", using a URL, like 
"Fixes https://tm.tl/1234";.  I wouldn't even mind if we just had to use the 
Trac wiki syntax for this, i.e. "Fixes [ticket:1234]" as long as we could turn 
off the "#" syntax which Github also uses.

However, this involves surgery within Trac's code, and for me personally, the 
work required to find the relevant regexes and modify them is worse than 
continuing to deal with the annoyance.  However, I would very much appreciate 
it if someone else would take this on :-).
