I suspect this is a problem at the git-review Python code, not a
problem with Gerrit itself. I took a (very) quick look at the code and
noticed it uses the 'argparse' module to parse all arguments. This is
the issue I believe we're hitting: https://bugs.python.org/issue22433
... unfortunately it's been sitting there, opened for 5 years now.
Note: enclosing the string in quotes should help but I've seen reports
that it would only work when using '--topic='.
@Dominig, if you can spare a couple of minutes, I'd be curious to know
if the following command works for you:
git review --topic="initial creation Doc page Navigate Git Code
