$ bzr unshelve 1
Using changes with id "1".
bzr: ERROR: exceptions.NotImplementedError: <property object at 0xa57aaa4>

Problem is caused by the keywords plugin (lp:bzr-keywords). I worked around this bug by doing the following:

  mv ~/.bazaar/plugins/keywords/ ~
  bzr unshelve 1
  mv ~/keywords ~/.bazaar/plugins/

I'm not convinced this bug is a duplicate of bug 389674. Yes, I get the same stacktrace, but that other bug appears unrelated to bzr-keywords and there is no mention of the work-around I used (which appears to show the bug is with that plugin)?

Sorry, I was indeed a bit too quick to mark this as a dupe of that other bug.

To be able to expand $Revision-Id$ here we're looking at the text revision in the inventory, which is not set for preview trees. On the other hand, we can't use the Tree itself for this as the Tree interface doesn't have a way to retrieve the last changed revision. Perhaps it's time to extend it to do so ?

To clarify my last comment - such a new method should be optional or only be present on e.g. RevisionTree, as it's not possible for all trees/files to return a last changed revision.

changing this to just be an "upstream" bug, rather than a bug in the particular ubuntu package.
