No, the same ticket should be fine. Maybe update the ticket's details to
highlight this is happening. Separate tickets are needed for separate branches
because the timeline cannot be shared.

Yes I have tripped over this but I have not had time to push a fix. Building PDF
is broken for me with the latest Sphinx. I am on a fully updated FreeBSD 11.2-p5
and all packages are updated plus the latest Sphinx in a virtualend. The issue
seems to be deep in Latex and relates to unicode characters in bib entries with
hyperef and the other package and things being confused. I do not know if it is
a bug in Sphinx or our configuration.

I am sorry I am not sure, I would need to look and see.
