Both are because of page deletion, see https://de.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Spezial:Logbuch&page=S%C5%BDD-Baureihe+%D0%AD%D0%A010. There're already a bug about it, and I'm going to mark this bug as duplicate.

https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Spezial:Versionsgeschichten_vereinen should be used for history merges if possible, by the way. If you use that, you don't need to perform unnecessary deletions.
