Perhaps I wasn't clear enough. No undo/redo MUCH better than getting tricked 
by the button state to think that you can actually undo, while in fact it 
will undo something else that you really don't want to.

In all situations where undo/redo will not behave as the user expects, the 
buttons should be disabled.

Undoing a previous action which is not related to what you were doing, is a 
complete disaster in terms of potential acceptance of a migration (lesson 
learned from experience). The same applies for redoing the wrong thing.

ok, this has to be tested. I'll keep a look on it.
