Sure. The following steps produce the effect I described, at least for
me. This is on a fairly recent (a couple of weeks old) bzr build of
Emacs, and a similarly recent git build of org-mode:

1. $ emacs -Q
2. C-x C-f test.org
3. M-x org-mode       [not really necessary since already in org-mode]
5. C-u 50 M-x newline
6. M-<
7. type "a"
8. M->
9. type "bc"

buffer-undo-list now contains:

(nil (52 . 54) (1 . 2) nil (1 . 51) (t . -1))

Note the lack of undo boundary between (52 . 54) and (1 . 2), which means
that undoing once (C-/) deletes both "bc" *and* "a" in one step.
