In Lightroom 5.2 RC, when using the Graduated Filter, Radial Filter, or Adjustment Brush, if a pin is added and then undo and/or redo is performed while the tool is active, sometimes an extra history step of "Update [Effect] Adjustment" is created. Also, after performing undo and then adding a brush stroke to a pin, sometimes the History state is called "Update [Effect] Adjustment" instead of "Add Brush Stroke."

Example A:
1. Choose the Adjustment Brush; for Effect, select Exposure, and add a brush stroke. The History Panel shows "Add Brush Stroke."
2. With the same pin (or any pin) still selected, Ctrl-Z and then Ctrl-Y to undo and redo. Now the History Panel shows "Add Brush Stroke" and "Update Exposure Adjustment," even though no exposure adjustment has been applied.

Example B:
1. Choose the Adjustment Brush; for Effect, select Exposure, and add a brush stroke. The History Panel shows "Add Brush Stroke."
2. With the pin still selected, modify the brush stroke by painting again. The History Panel shows a second "Add Brush Stroke."
3. Ctrl-Z to undo. Now in the History Panel, one "Add Brush Stroke" is deleted but "Update Exposure Adjustment" is added, even though no exposure adjustment has been applied.

Example C:
1. Choose the Adjustment Brush; for Effect, select Exposure, and add a brush stroke. The History Panel shows "Add Brush Stroke."
2. Close the Adjustment Brush tool.
3. Apply a Contrast adjustment. The History Panel shows "Contrast."
4. Choose the Adjustment Brush and select the pin that was created in step 1 (or any pin).
5. Without making any changes, Ctrl-Z to undo. In the History Panel, "Contrast" is deleted but "Update Exposure Adjustment" is added, even though no exposure adjustment has been applied.
6. Multiple types of adjustments can be made in step 3, but after selecting a pin and then using Ctrl-Z, each of those adjustments will be deleted successively, with no way to redo those by using Ctrl-Y.

* In examples A, B, and C, the same problem occurs using the Graduated Filter and Radial Filter. The problem doesn't occur if the pin selected when performing Ctrl-Z has the Sharpness, Moiré, Defringe, Color, or any custom effect applied.

Example D:
1. Choose the Adjustment Brush; for Effect, select Sharpness, and add a brush stroke. The History Panel shows "Add Brush Stroke."
2. With the pin still selected, modify the brush stroke by painting again. The History Panel shows a second "Add Brush Stroke."
3. Ctrl-Z once to undo.
4. With the pin still selected, modify the brush stroke by painting again. The History Panel now shows "Update Sharpness Adjustment" instead of "Add Brush Stroke," even though the same action was performed as in step 2.
5. This inconsistent History state naming only occurs with the Sharpness, Moiré, and Defringe effects.
