Understood.  I tried exactly the same thing with an older emacs (GNU
Emacs 23.2.1 (x86_64-pc-linux-gnu, GTK+ Version 2.24.4) of 2011-04-04 on
crested, modified by Debian) and org-mode (6.33x and 7.6) and have this
result:

(nil (53 . 54) (52 . 53) nil (1 . 2) nil (1 . 51) (t 65535 . 65535))

Which is what one wants.  Someone seems to be merging the self-insert
commands in your situation.  Probably the native merging code has
changed in recent emacs itself.

If this is confirmed, we could modify org-mode's merging code to only
merge undo entries that span one character.
