they might have had their bookshelf on hold which puts their WL on hold unless it is on autorequest.  if they just reactivated their shelf that could be why this happened

Or there is the possibility that this person was in wishlist hold with another sender when you "posted" the book, and then that sender could not mail the book, so the request moved along to you.
