In the past I've been able to change a changeset comment using
http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/RawEditor .  This only works if
the changeset is still open, so I think it depends on whether
whatever created the changeset closed it, or left it to autoclose
after an hour of no activity.

             Before I built a wall I'd ask to know
             What I was walling in or walling out,
             And to whom I was like to give offense.
