Funny thing, a book in a series about Jane Austen that's been sitting on my shelf for months just came up today as a WL hold.........if I've had it posted to FIFO how did they put it on their WL?  When they asked for book shouldn't it just have shown up as 'available'?

Their account was probably on vacation hold or even just the book was put on hold on their wl. They'd had the book on their wl, then went on vacation hold or placed this particular book on hold. In the mean time you'd posted the book. They undo vacation hold or wl book hold & it gets offered to them through their wl.

I just posted a book like that. My bookshelf copy shows the pale red W, so someone has it WL but on hold. My copy is the only one, so if they unhold it will be requested, that is, unless someone else requests it first.
