yes, it is annoying, but i think that it should not stop the path to 1.4.

you should be able to redo the wrongly undone task and get back to the 
previous state.

i don't know if it is possible to issue some sort of warning... but i 
think it would be too introusive.

well, the problem is, when the undo deletes an element. but i agree, 
that this may be a sensible behaviour for most cases: can you make a 
feature request for it?

personally, i think that if this behaviour can be helpful and is easy 
enought to implement, it may be worth to do it!

further feedback is still welcome!
