Me too.  I have a Korg 3500, which is documented as being 16-voice
polyphonic.  I once tried a run across about half the keyboard, with
the sustain pedal down.  I ended up with the first half-dozen and last
ten (or so) notes sounding; it definitely wasn't simple LRU.

Of course, this is a sample of size one, but it'd be hard to believe
this is the only synth to work this way.
