Obviously you just had a leftover mc session which had overwritten your
settings the first time you tried. 

If mc is NOT running, you can edit the configuration with ANY editor. mc
and mcedit is the same binary, that's why you can't edit it with mcedit
if mc or editor configuration autosave is on.

This is not a bug and therefore it shall be closed. Moreover, there is a
settings dialog in the editor to disable visible tabs / spaces, so I
don't even understand why do you need to edit the configuration file to
disable them anyway.
