This can be easily fixed by adding 1.0 to the list of versions. That's 
not really an issue, the actual one is to select the correct version 
from a big list.

You are not the only person. I'd prefer a better solution as well, but I 
change the camp since it does not seem to be worth the effort at the 
moment. You only move the problem from selecting the right version to 
selecting the right Jira project - and therefore break all the URLs. 
Some like issues linked in Jira comments themselves you can't even fix.

I think in the meantime we should just leave it as is and hope for 
improvements in Jira itself like versions specific to components and not 
only projects.
