It appears that we only clear undo stack when the main frame is unloaded (at least on Chromium) but the user never navigates on GMail so this becomes an issue. We end up accumulating tons of EditingText, spans, divs, etc... we created along the way in the undo stack even though GMail's editor never use them (they have their own undo stack).

We should at least clear EditCommands that belong to unloaded frames.
