Multiple Scrum Boards report the same Sprint

When viewing reports for diverse boards, we noticed, that some sprints are in multiple boards.

The sprints have the same JIRA-internal id. But only one report shows the real issues and chart. Is that a bug?

See the attached screenshots for boards 35 and 45, both with sprint 42:

If the sprints have the same ID (visible in URL) then that sounds like an issue in the board config. Try removing the empty board an re-creating with a filter distinct from the first to prevent overlap.

Otherwise GH is designed to let multiple sprinnts show on the same board, or the same sprint on multiple boards - that is expected.

The other board isn't empty, it's a valid board with it's own sprints and disjunct projects, so I can't delete it.

I just wonder why the same sprints (with same id) appear in reports of different boards.

The sprints shown on a board are bases on the issues shown on the board.

There must be 1 or more issues visible on both boards. Refine your filters to eliminate that.
