I could understand a better undo for the front-end alone,
but it's relation to the state of the kernal would be pretty strange. As
to the comment about messages, here's my simple wish: A parameter that
would abort a calculation after a fixed number of messages was issued.
Who cares after the first 100 or so repeats of the same message.

Sometimes I find Mathematica's undo capabilities very limited do
anyone know how to address this issue? To deliver full capacity one
must be able to undo/redo and test several results Mathematica pops
often finding the undo function useless. Has anyone experienced similar results?
Yes. It will undo some things and not others, with no apparent distinction. I
cannot predict what it will or won't be able to undo. Slightly useless in its present
state, as you say. Just one more way that Mathematica is user-hostile, the worst
one being the error messages.
