An observation was that it might have to do with another submission
(of conflicting changes) to the target project.

There are two possibilities how broken links can happen:

1) the link target was modified because of another submission
and your patch set no longer applies.

2) you continue changing your packet after you created a submit
request. osc creates the request with a revision, i.e. exactly
this revision is checked in.

If you continued to change your package, your new patch
set can no longer apply. The backend could also not replace
the link with an empty link (as you added new stuff, which
would get lost otherwise).

This is basically 1) with just the difference that it's not
a submission from another person, but your own submission
that kills the link.

It wouldn't happen if the submit revision contained no
revision, but maybe this is also not the right solution.
