Yes, and as I said, there is nothing we can do about that. Github has their 
own issue tracker and they are auto-linking those ticket numbers, there is no 
way to stop the auto-linking or have it point to the correct location.

For that and other reasons tickets need to be created with details of the pull 
request, not the other way around.

On a related note - Github is not another avenue to seek developer attention, 
that remains Trac for bugs/patches and the mailing list for discussion. Any 
pull request for code I maintain, for which there is no ticket in trac will be 
ignored by me.
