Mutt doesn't lock the config file while running - I've often made
changes to it while running mutt elsewhere.
As others have suggested, it's probably a problem with the OP's editor
-- it may have died unexpectedly while editing that file previously, or
a previous swap file for it may be floating around somewhere.
