I don't think it's a current problem, but I'm sure it's happened in the past.
I'm sure it has happened before. Probably Asian releases or small studios (Fox Lorber strikes me as the kind of studio that would think this is a good idea). But it wasn't Warner Bros. Their discs are true anamorphic. It just took them a while to figure out how to do digital compression.

I myself thought some of my non-anamorphic dvds (i.e. THE THING, THERE'S SOMETHING ABOUT MARY, RISING SUN....etc) were actually anamorphic on my widescreen TV - simply due the fact that the image filled the entire screen. However, what I later discovered is that the ZOOM feature on my widescreen TV inexplicably activated with these titles; thus blowing up the image. I probably would have continued to think that these titles were anamorphic if I hadn't realized a significant amount of the picture was cropped out.
