Why not ask your question on the new OpenStreetMap Community Forum?

I am a beginner user and today tried to correct the naming of a road using Potlatch2.

It seemed to work OK and I saved the change, but that change shows as "still editing" in the History tab changeset.

Have I overlooked something?

You are encouraged to save your changes multiple times during the edit session, it will only open one changeset and save all your changes to that. Unfortunantly there are no way for a flash program to know when you navigate away from the site to end the edit session. It can therefore not close the changeset automaticly. This will casue the changeset to be in the 'still editing' mode for an hour before it is automaticly closed by the server for inactivity.

If you have an idea to how to fix this you want to implement feel free to check out the code and send a patch with the changes.
