Koha follows what I think is a pretty widely understood pattern for
handling holds: The purpose of placing a hold on a book is to give
other users the chance to "get in line" for the book. If the book I
want is checked out, I place a hold so that when it is returned it
gets set aside for me. If someone else has a hold on the book first,
then my hold is put on the list behind his.

This is not a bug, it's how we've all agreed holds should work.
