I attempted to edit a comment close to the 5 minute timeout and was denied the opportunity to Save. I cancelled and added a new comment.

While I was watching, the edit link of the previous comment didn't go away until it said I edited it 7 minutes ago.

IMHO the edit link could go when it says edited 5 minutes ago, or at least by the time it says 6 minutes ago.

I've changed this to a feature-request because the test comment I added to this question still shows the edit link 10 minutes after I added it. Clearly the link is not currently removed until a page refresh.

This comment is trying to test what happens when I don't try to edit it, but I am watching TV... – Mark Hurd Dec 17 '12 at 11:54
This might be a case: Within 5 minutes period you may clicked on edit while editing you may crossed 5 minutes so it gives this error. (This happens too many times with me.) :) – hims056 Dec 17 '12 at 11:57
+1 Edit link doesn't disappear even after 6 minutes, 7 minutes, 8 minutes, 12 minutes or 18 minutes. – hims056 Dec 17 '12 at 12:20
