Michał Berger has reported two issues:

- Repeatedly deleting and undoing the deletion of the last line
  results in characters being lost from the end of the line.

- Deleting the bottom line twice then attempting to undo each of
  these deletions results in a segfault.

The problem seems to be an incorrect test for whether the text buffer
is empty.
