"Repeat Last" does not ignore "Select More/Less"
Closed, InvalidPublic

Description

System Information
Win7 64

Blender Version
2.71 as well as in older versions

The "Repeat Last" function usually ignores all select actions because, if not, it would'nt be very usefull at all.
Not though when selecting by "Select More/Less" (STRG&NUM+/-). The "Repeat Last" takes this action in account unnecessarily IMHO because hitting "Repeat Last" after "Select More/Less" just repeats "Select More/Less" instead of repeating the previous action. :(
Would be nice to have the repeat function improved by changing this misbehavior.

This is working as intended, for lasso, border select it doesn't make sense. but other select operations are intentionally registered for redo. (select linked, checker de-select, invert etc)

Ops looks like it was wishful thinking that "Repeat Last" ignores all select actions.
Rather than "Select Linked" and "Checker Deselct" etc, it also takes in account "Deselect All" what makes it impossible to use "Repeat Last"
when selecting anything after "Deselect All"(A). Then "Repeat Last" just deselects all again.

However, could be improved significant and possibly without much effort but works as intended. Of course I don't know if fixing this would conflicting
with anything else but apart from that I just don't get it.

BTW - I'm not talking about "Undo/Redo" but about "Repeat Last"(SHIFT&R).
