I recently posted two wish list books that were not put on hold.  I double checked the isbn, and they both had long waiting lists. Has anyone else has=d this happen?

Are you sure they aren't on auto-request? If they are, then they'll show up on your bookshelf on 1-hour buyer's remorse hold instead of showing up on wish list hold on your My Account page.

What Cathy said, there's a 1-hour buyer's remorse hold.  Check your bookshelf, find the line for the book in question and look on the far right hand side.  If the book is wishlisted and on the hold, you will see an ! inside a gray circle (IIRC).  Check your main account page an hour later, and the book should appear under 'wishlist holds' or 'books to mail'.
