Short description of error
The most recent actions in Undo History are hidden/off screen.

Exact steps for others to reproduce the error
I can't attach a .blend file as they don't keep Undo History to my knowledge. However start blender and perform random actions until the Undo History fills the whole screen. Eventually the row with the most recent actions will be outside the screen area. You can still select them but only blindly. I think actions with long names increase the likelihood of this happening but I am not sure.

Event Timeline

Bastien Montagne (mont29) lowered the priority of this task from 90 to 50.

Yeah, seems to be a problem when computing available space…

By default the undo system has a limit of 32 steps.
Values greater than this are not recommended.

Anyway this is a known interface issue that is already being addressed in D6362
