When tracing I found that the text_range_write function in cmd_filter
creates a text snapshot when called. If I uncomment this call to
text_snapshot (and the write to txt->saved_action), undoing the whole
filter operation works but re-doing it is broken (the re-doing seems to be
broken in other cases as well though). Uncommenting this text_snapshot
function call may also have other consequences for other codepaths
though so I will need more time to see whether there is another way to
make undo work.
