Registry Finder 2.46 run as normal or admin user.

I'm in
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Snes9x\Capabilities\FileAssociations
1) I delete the value: .zip (REG_SZ) Data: Snes9x.Win32
2) in the bottom History panel I select last action and choose "Redo action"
3) now I try "Undo action"...
... a bogus empty key value: .zip (REG_NONE) appears but it's a ghost item that disappears when I change registry folder and go back to FileAssociations...

It looks buggy and confusing form a user perspective.

Expected: 2 should have been ignored (nonsense to repeat a deletion when the value has already been deleted), and 3 should have just restored the original key.

...another strange behaviour: you can Repeat action over and over and restore the same value 10+ times (even though they are ghosts of the same identical value and will disappear once you change directory and go back)

Still ghost values if you do multiple Undo Actions after you deleted that value... 'till you refresh view
