Has anyone else ever run into a denied Petition for Naturalization, and
if so, for the above ostensive reason?
I've run across several denials, but none so far for the reason that
you've mentioned. The most common reason for denial for the folks that
I've researched is "Lack of Prosecution" (ie, failure to appear in court
for their hearing).

There may be a paper trail that can provide you with more information.
There is a good article called "Quick Guide to finding INS Case and
Correspondence Files Related to Specific Individuals" at
https://bit.ly/2OBNTGE
(https://www.uscis.gov/history-and-genealogy/genealogy/genealogy-notebook/quick-guide-finding-ins-case-and-correspondence-files-related-specific-individuals
) that describes some additional research that you can do.

A well known commercial website has a database called "U.S. Subject
Index to Correspondence and Case Files of the Immigration and
Naturalization Service, 1903-1959" -- check the catalog of the website
to locate it. Despite the title, it does contain names of some individuals.

Another possibility is NARA's "Name Index (ca. 1893 - ca. 1932)":

Lastly, you may request a search of the USCIS Master Index through their
Genealogy Program ($65): https://bit.ly/2FeGXzV
