Magit simply visits     the COMMIT_EDITMSG file in .git/ when you make a 
Presumably, the buffer for this file wasn't killed after your previous commit, 
and you don't have auto-revert-mode on.  Hence, the next commit would just 
bring the existing COMMIT_EDITMSG buffer up again, with the old contents, like 
if you re-visit a file again.

COMMIT_EDITMSG will have the right contents though, so M-x revert-buffer will 
update the buffer accordingly.
