Default extend file system as well?

You can find instructions here:
Thank you for the great tutorial on LVM and the solution to fix the volume groups!

When trying to remove the /home entry from /etc/fstab I get this:

Found a swap file by the name "/etc/.fstab.swp"
          owned by: root   dated: Wed Sep 19 08:39:26 2012
         file name: /etc/fstab
          modified: YES
         user name: root   host name:
        process ID: 20493
While opening file "/etc/fstab"

(1) Another program may be editing the same file.
    If this is the case, be careful not to end up with two
    different instances of the same file when making changes.
    Quit, or continue with caution.

(2) An edit session for this file crashed.
    If this is the case, use ":recover" or "vim -r /etc/fstab"
    to recover the changes (see ":help recovery").
    If you did this already, delete the swap file "/etc/.fstab.swp"
    to avoid this message.
"/etc/fstab" 16L, 917C
Press ENTER or type command to continue
What should I do? Is ISP Config 3 or related app keeping this open?
