bug#14039: Bug in with-fluids semantics

I would expect
(k) to be the same. Otherwise fluids would not mix well with undo redo sematics.
But I do understand that people might have decided that it should work
like this.
and knowing the this semantic, one can fix the problem. If the
semantics is correct
I really can't find an example where it is useful though. Do you have
an example?
