Lightroom 5: Monochromatic Undo

Lightroom 5. I'm running througn shots for technical checks. I want to keep one file and reject 2 others so I mark them as such, that is in my workflow I change the red label (Waiting For Selection) to green (Selected) and the other 2 to yellow(Rejects).

Except that I have inadvertently left all 3 files selected (highlighted) so when I change the label on the 1 meant to Selected (green label), in fact all 3 are labelled green. No problem, ctrl Z or Undo Toggle Selected Label' on the menu will bring them back.....

Except it doesn't. What it does is change the next 2 files in my run through shots to B/W. The Toggled files stay where they are, the labelling is not toggled. I can put the colour back in my files by going to Develop module, Basic / Treatment where they appear as 'Black and White' and clicking on Color.

I hope this makes sense. Anyone care to try to reproduce it?

To simplify:

Make a Collection of (say) 20 files labelled Red
Make an empty collection of files labelled Green
Right click on 3 Red labelled files
Those files now disappear from the Red Collection and appear in the Green Collection.
Now go to Edit->Undo Toggle Green Label
The green labelled files stay in the Green label Collection
But a couple of files in the Red Collection convert to Black and White
