It's entirely possible the hyper-v change you mention fell victim to
a temporary network connectivity or API authentication failure
between Gerrit and Launchpad.

Personally I'd just keep an eye out for them and encourage
contributors to manually set their bugs to fix-committed once their
changes merge rather that hassling with amending commit messages and
further delaying reviews in the process. The bug update hook in
Gerrit does not work 100% of the time, so manual intervention is
still sometimes necessary anyway.
