I found a pending merge from 2011: and it's one that I thought should also happen:
Thomas McCullough (McCullough-411) and Thomas Jefferson McCullough (McCullough-189) compare
Proposed by Aran Stubbs.
Approval from Nancy Brown for McCullough-411 has been recorded.
Someone from McCullough-189's Trusted List needs to approve.
If McCullough-411 and McCullough-189 are different people, reject the merge.
If there's been an error, remove the pending merge.

As pending merges are often sorted by date, with newest first, then it seems it's possible for stale pending merges to hardly ever be scrubbed.
Is there a way to sort pending merges by oldest first?
Bill and Jillaine:
Perhaps I'm misunderstanding your point, but you already can click on the re-sort link titled:
by oldest match date
link near the top of the Browse existing matched page.
Hope this helps,
