The issue is that maptools has been updated to try to stop the use of the 
very outdated polylist representation of polygons, given as the polys= 
argument. The edit.nb function does work when polys= is given an object 
inheriting from SpatialPolygons. I've submitted a revision of spdep to 
CRAN to permit the backwards-compatible use of polylist objects, but a 
warning is issued asking that the newer representation be used.
