My assumptions from email below weren't fully correct...
There is RedlineGuard class 
instance of which is constructed just before UndoImpl called.
Constructor sets RedlineFlags to value, that been during editing, which 
is Undone now, In destructor it sets flags back to their current values. 
This should help Undo mechanism to work properly. But in reality it not 
saves from crushes.
For now I'll do my further investigations on this issue.
