One similar story is the following:
From ST5: The klingons are speaking about what is gonna happen, after they captured kirk.
{vaj toDDujDaj ngeHbej DIvI'} "So the federation will certainly send their rescueship."
Unfortunately, the movie-makers (how should I call it??) made a mistake, and used that phrase twice. Now 
Okrand had to re-phrase it, and it became {vaj toDuj Daj ngeHbej DI vI'} "Shooting space garbage is no 
test of a warrior's mettle." Now I know why there is two words for..., em, no, ... vaj is not the same as 
SuvwI' :-)
