Oh yes, that was purely a client-side problem, which was fixed by the
better capabilities of WC-NG. In theory the client could just as well
translate the above series of commands into a simple modification,
instead of a replace with history (copied from itself). But that
doesn't happen in practice :-). Anyway, I guess this is getting off
topic for this thread ...
