What you are actually doing is flowing the the solder, not floating. If that fixes the issue what you had was a cold solder joint. The 'wave process' you refer to is how the solder is originally flowed. It is put down as a paste, then the components and placed on it, then it is passed through an infra red oven to flow the paste. Excess is washed off, then it should be inspected. If their process is in control, they will inspect a portion of them. All of them are not looked at. So defects can slip through.
