Well, apparently I did not misunderstand you. :) Color me shocked.
What is the point of creating a release branch to stabilize, if you are
just going to merge trunk back into it later?
Especially for such very dubious reasoning as 'it looks strange to me'?

If you wish though, I can make guesses at what's going on.

What happened? Did someone commit the fix to trunk instead of release?
If so, then maybe they made a mistake. If it was a mistake, then
cherry-pick the commit. Done. No big deal. Mistakes happen.

It is my understanding that the release branch should contain the boost
1.5.5 beta. With that understanding in mind, I can't understand this
quoted sentence. What does it mean?

Broken laptops are not related to trunk and release branches. I don't
know why you quoted this.

What's the problem? If someone writes that it is not merged *yet*, then
they intend to apply it to the release branch somehow, right?
Is merging trunk into release part of the boost release strategy?
