That's because you have not made any changes since the edit.  It's doing 
the right thing - reverting to the state before the edit as you asked it to.

You can do unedit -w to leave the file read/write.. historically unedit 
always sets the file read only no matter what its state before.. it's 
debatable whether it should always do this, but as it stands that's the 
way it works.
