To be honest, neither have I...but it's always a possibility if either of the two gaskets are so badly aged that they've just fallen completely apart.

Those stock recirc piston valves are pretty bullet proof and not much can go wrong with them outside of a broken spring (which may not allow it to close completely, thus recirculating a portion of the boost) or being seriously gummed up to where it's not moving the full motion. All just theory, as I've not heard of either of these two things happening but there's always a first time.
