What does it mean that startEditing() isn't working?

Sorry I didn't get when does this happen... you mean that extent is
not updated after calls to moveVertex() ?

This is because QGIS user interface doesn't get updated automatically
(although it probably should). I think you can work this around by
setting a new connection:
QObject.connect( ??, SIGNAL("editingChanged(QgsMapLayer*)"),
Replace the questionmarks with your own class where you're going to
emit that editingChanged signal. It will look like this:
I have not tried the code so probably it's not a copy/paste example.
The important thing is that you want call that
"activateDeactivateLayerRelatedActions" slot of QgisApp that takes
care of updating UI if the layer is active.

Probably you're just touching less explored things in QGIS API that
has been used by QGIS application only, so probably the semantics of
some functions isn't like what you would expect...
