Just use Ctrl+L to run Latex.
The mode "Automatically run Latex" (which you have activated in the File menu) is meant to save you a few key presses, but it doesn't do everything. Since running Latex is relatively slow compared to other operations, Ipe only does it when it is sure it is necessary.
Undo, redo, and pasting objects may or may not need a Latex run, depending on the operation or the objects being pasted. Perhaps I can try to make it a bit more clever, but it really is just a single key press that you would save.
Notes if I ever want to make Ipe smarter in this respect:
Another option is to implement running latex in the background so that it's not such an interruption, and then starting a new latex run in any operation that could possibly need it.
