Vote too old to be changed, unless post is edited “problem”

By mistake I downvoted good answer that was upvoted by me earlier. Now I cannot upvote it again because the answer is too old. I asked answer author to edit his answer and then was able to upvote it again.

Is there other way to repair such mistake?

I think SO should allow me to change my decision within some time, but maybe I omitted something.

Hi. Questions about stackoverflow belong at meta.stackoverflow.com. –  Tinister Oct 23 '09 at 10:51
    
I've seen this problem too. This should be moved to meta and hopefully the SO development team will do something with it. –  sharptooth Oct 23 '09 at 10:52

It's designed to prevent people gaming the system - particularly downvoting other answers on questions they've upvoted. See this related question.
