I agree that this is unlikely to happen with any frequency but concocting pathological examples is a hobby of mine. For this case one needn’t look much further than my favorite ambiguity source, {wej}:

{jagh yo' muvHa'pu' 'op Dujmey. muchollI' vagh. muHIv wej 'e' vItu'.}

Here’s another with {DaH}:

{labbeH DaH 'e' Sov QumpIn.}
