Hmmm... yes, undo commands do seem to have proliferated! I'll if I can
clarify the docs on them.

Already fixed in the latest version (unreleased), but thanks for the
report! (When I start getting things I've already fixed as bug reports, I
start thinking I'm overdue for a new release...)

This is fixed. Thanks for the report! I hadn't noticed it because the
repos that I push to usually have prefs/email defined, so I haven't seen
the error (at least not in a long time).
It actually isn't an error, but a bug. i.e. the error message isn't fixed,
instead I made it do what it should have done, which is prompt you for the
target email address. It'll be a few hours before the fix makes it into
the darcs repo (not that I imagine you'll be avidly pulling this morning
and frustrated not to see it...).
