Short description of error
After selecting a few of the latest operators in the Info Editor and using the Replay(shortcut: R) nothing happens - properly because the operators are executed in the wrong context.

So maybe, when storing the previous operators, the context should be stored with them, so they can be re-executed in the right context, and Info Editor can work as the macro recorder/player, I guess it was intended to be.

(Btw. same thing with the Python Console mostly fails because of bad context - maybe the user should be able to select between the visible areas in a drop down menu, in what context the commands should be executed(The Python Console seems to be hard-coded to execute in the 3D View?)).
