How long after editing the comment did you link to it? – animuson Nov 15 '12 at 22:00
    
@animuson 31 seconds later as you can see by the chat image (i believe) – amanaP lanaC A nalP A naM A Nov 15 '12 at 22:00
    
Isn't that time how long ago you first posted the comment, not how long ago you edited it? – animuson Nov 15 '12 at 22:01
    
@animuson i am not sure. but it was about half a minute later. – amanaP lanaC A nalP A naM A Nov 15 '12 at 22:02

Chat relies on the API for the data for oneboxing, and the API can sometimes take a small amount of time (under a minute) to reflect changes. Since you posted a link to that comment 31 seconds after creating it, it was certainly less than a minute since you had edited it.

If you try posting a link to the same comment now, you'll see it's correct:
