I can think of one obvious example from a few years ago:
rIch          talk about, discuss (v)

I think this word may have been requested because people wanted to add an
object to ja'chuq and were forming sentences like *nab wIja'chuq, which is
explicitly ungrammatical, perhaps trying to avoid ?nab maja'chuq.
