In brief: Uncommon
Misfiling of records is a function of human error and does occur on occasion.
Generally the records will be found in time but not always. This is handled, after suitable apologies, by re-starting a new record. This is likely to occur less often as electronic records become more widespread although they have significant problems of their own.
