The design is to have undo and redo be focus-specific, rather than 
assuming they are only for
the current editor.  This allows undo/redo to also work in tools where 
appropriate.  That's
the theory, although in practice I believe it is not used in most tools 
so we should perhaps
change this to make it always operate on the current editor regardless 
of focus.

Thanks for pointing this out.
