I found one, but it's completely ambiguous. The end of Power Klingon has 
{batlh qaghojmoH}. Unfortunately, this could be either {batlh SoHvaD 
vIghojmoH} or {batlh SoH qaghojmoH} by the prefix trick (or even {SoHvaD 
batlh vIghojmoH} "I teach you honor," though we know that's not what was 
intended).

(Conversational Klingon also has {batlh qaghojmoHpu'}, which doesn't 
change anything.)
