3.9-7061 showstopper bug - Mantis #5231

I consider this to be a showstopper:-

open a workspace
type in some random stuff
add a line
and print it on the '3+4'
Now use menu->changes->recent log file... to see what got put in the  
changes log.

Whoops! Everything in the workspace up to the code printit'd is logged.
If you put some evaluable in the middle of the workspace and printit,  
again you get everything up to the printit.

We can't let this go out for general use - it will fill the changes  
log much faster than anyone could ever expect and would completely  
break the logic of recovering your state by executing the recent  
changes file since many things would get repeated repeatedly. Not to  
mention, the entire text in the recovered file up to the chunk being  
evaluated would get logged *again*.
