Thanks for the report, that should be fixed.

The issue is still happening in 2.8 build of 2019-05-13

Germano Cavalcante (mano-wii) changed the subtype of this task from "Report" to "Bug".

Not really sure this is a bug.
We have lots of operators the return OPERATOR_CANCELLED when nothing really changed (look for blocks like the following)

if (!changed) {
  return OPERATOR_CANCELLED;
}

If the operator was cancelled then the BKE_report apparently doesnt refresh info editor immediately (it does with OPERATOR_FINISHED).
D7238: Fix T58439: Info Editor does not show operator reports immediately when operator cancelled. fixes this, not 100% sure this is the best place for the notifier though...
