Hmm..this posted before I'd written anything!

Anyway, we've discussed this in the past.  So perhaps the glitch is back.  When we receive a WL'd book we are supposed to have the option of having other versions removed from our WL.  This week I received 2 books, and tonight when I looked, the other versions are still on my WL.  I don't recall being asked about deleting them.

That feature only works when the system is aware that the books are the "same"  and not all books are correctly linked to do it!

That makes your post a great reminder that we need to keep an eye on things ourselves :)

This just happened to me!  A book I had received awhile back, but still had (different ISBN) on my wishlist, came up the other day and I excitedly accepted it w/o even thinking that I might already have it . . .
