I've noticed this myself a couple of times. Sometimes, users remain logged in for several days and thus even if they've posted recently, they were last logged in several days ago. As such, as more and more members login and view messages in the forum, (example: 5 people per day for 3 days = 15 names), but the person's name that doesn't show up has been logged in for 4 or 5 days... their name won't show up on the recent drop down list.
The bypass fix is to copy the name of the person you want to post to click the [Others] button on the To: line and paste the copied name and then they will be found to select.
That's interesting! I don't think that was the problem in this case as the poster(or viewer in this case) corrected it by logging out and clearing her browser cache but still good to know.
As an aside - which browser do you use the most?
