Strange to me..
This function is referenced many times in the code (try 
grep -r 'wfWikiID' /var/lib/mediawiki1.9 ) and defined in 
includes/GlobalFunctions.php at line 2144:
 * Get an ASCII string identifying this wiki
 * This is used as a prefix in memcached keys
function wfWikiID() {
        global $wgDBprefix, $wgDBname;
        if ( $wgDBprefix ) {
                return "$wgDBname-$wgDBprefix";
        } else {
                return $wgDBname;

I think we'll need more information before we can settle this as a real bug.
Could you explain us steps to reproduce it ? In particular, did it appear with 
the automated upgrade script or via a manual update ? In the later case, how 
did you perform the upgrade ?
