I looked at the tags, and noticed that the update tag was being used, a tag that had recently been listed for burnination. I looked at the edit history, and saw that this tag had been added in an edit by another user.

I noticed for the first time that I had the option to edit previous revisions, so I thought I'd go ahead and pull that tag out. I went to edit the revision, removed the tag, and hit save.
Surprise Plot Twist!
Imagine my surprise when, upon re-loading the question, the edit I had voted to approve had disappeared. With a little more research, I noticed that it had been rejected by the Community user.
The edit I voted to approve is missing the tag that I attempted to remove, but the edit that I attempted to fix still was listed as adding the burninated tag and my edit had become a brand new revision. This appears to be a bug of some sort, but I'm not entirely sure what the correct behavior would be in this case.
- I should have been told I could not edit the revision I attempted to edit?
- My edit should have changed the revision I attempted to edit and the edit I voted to approve?
- My edit should have been interpreted as an improvement on the not-yet-approved edit?
