This one is in the game since pretty much as long as the game exists.
There is even a variant of it I already saw several times: if you host a lobby and it gets full, and someone leaves, so therefore only 7/8 players, but it already was some time full, it often happens that this lobby will never get full again (guess also invisible)

That is true, though it has been happening much more frequently since the last update, to the point where I would say unranked multiplayer is almost broken.
