Comment (by vladimir_kolesnikov):

 I think it is not a bug, it is a feature: when you are editing a
 page/post, WordPress puts a lock on it (wp-admin/post.php). First it
 checks the lock and if the post is locked, it says something like
 "Warning: %username is currently editing this post". If the post is not
 locked, it puts a lock on it and lock is owned by the current user.
