There's any number of Emacs commands that are neither movement nor
editing.  For example, iconify-frame.

It might be a useful feature to not interrupt a series of kills across
these commands, but that's not how this feature was programmed: it
specifically looks at the last command, and makes no exceptions.

So this is not a bug, it's a request for a new feature.
