I see the yellow box next to "review", and click it. It offers to let me review suggested edits. But when I get there, the only option available to me is "Skip". Why is it offering for me to review it if I can't do anything about it?

This is the suggested edit in question.

Is this a case of a robo-reviewer making a dummy review before I got the chance to click it?

This must be due to the fact that only mods can edit locked posts. Both the suggested edit and the first review did indeed take place before the lock. I don't believe this is a case of robo-reviewing, either.

Anyway, I've reviewed the suggestion myself, so it's now off the queue. As to whether or not this is really a bug, a dev may have to address that.
