I was reviewing a edit from a 600 rep user, and found it good to approve.
However when I approved it I got the message "This suggestion still needs 1 approval vote from other reviewers" while I have 3700 rep and thus could edit the question myself and so renders the need for one more approval useless.
To me this seems like a bug?

This behavior is intentional. See the special Stack Overflow rules in How do suggested edits work?.

    Seems like a strange design choice, I feel they should take into account the rep of the user that approves the edit.
