The only reason I can think of a bill "reappears" under "Bills due 
reminder" is if you manually unpost and re-post it.

At that point the link between the bill and any payment is lost. This 
behaviour is new in the 2.6.x series. Older versions of gnucash retained 
the link to payments even when unposting a bill. This was the source of 
several bugs so the behaviour has changed as of gnucash 2.6.0.

You can find a more elaborate explanation and a way to remedy the unpaid 
invoices here:

Does this address your issue ?
