I would love to answer your question, but so many other things you
said  baffled me that I don't think I can.  When I do C-_ on emacs
21.3.1 I get many many many levels of undo. It keeps going back
seemingly forever.  This also works in the console with no
modifications whatsoever.  

The problem is, I'm not even sure what a person could do if the wanted
to do what you are describing.  Do you have something strange in your
.emacs file?
