Sorry for this confusion.

The 'Undo' changes the worktree not the staged content,.

It would make sense to undo the revert on the staged content, if there
are no more changes to this file in the worktree. I.e., you wont be
able to apply the 'undo' anymore to the worktree file if it is not
listed anymore. Though even that case should be able to implement.
Though the undo is currently not bound to a specific path. This may be
the cause of our different view. I though the undo is bound to the
path it was recorded, thus also would only be available when showing a
diff on this path again. Therefore I think, having the 'Undo Last
Revert' in the context menu may not be the best place to begin with,
or at least indicate that this 'undo' operation does not necceseritly
operate on the file currently shown.
