As deep as your memory. It just sits there and eat all memory if you 
let it.

Sure, files that really got deleted are gone, and the undo feature 
cannot help you there.
Other than that, I guess changing attributes or permissions is probably 
not tracked, as it doesn't go through the normal FS-engine.

Undo/redo feels a bit insane in a file manager IMO, but it might be 
helpful from time to time :-)
It's just not that visible because there just is no space left in the 
menu. Reorganizing that menu didn't receive much love when I tried it 
the last time (though I didn't push hard).
