Well, even if she says she wants it, you still shouldn't send it because your book is unpostable, regardless of whether you received it in that condition.  When this third person accepts the request, if she hasn't already, you should PM her and tell her that you are going to have to cancel the order.  Then, you should cancel on YOUR end.  If she cancels, it takes her out of line for the next copy of the book, which is not fair to her.

ETA: You cannot cancel this book while it is in wishlist hold.  So, if this person does not end up accepting the request, and it moves on to the next person, your best bet is not to PM them about the water damage so they will go ahead and accept the request.  THEN you cancel as soon as it is accepted.  That will take the book off your shelf and out of wishlist hold with all these people.

you don't want them to cancel because then it will just roll to the next person. 

ask them to accept and then YOU cancel so that they don't lose their place in line

On the bright side, if it keeps timing out you are cleaning up the WL. :P
