Thanks Allan,

Yes, preliminary testing suggests that your diagnosis might be the reason. When I edit a file that is only on my disk, I don’t see the behavior. The files that I’ve seen it in are in dropbox folders. I’m the only person editing those files, however, so there aren’t going to be external changes that are independent of the file I’m working on. Will dropbox files that only I am using have the ability to confuse undo?

So what undo does in my LaTeX file is: undo+move the cursor to a different part of the document. I haven’t figured out if there is some pattern to its movement of the cursor.
