The best I can offer you is a small set I used for testing Aspell.  It 
contains a lot of my own misspellings plus a few others from other sources.  
It has a lot of the more difficult misspellings that many spell checkers 
are unable to get.  You can find it at

If you do find such a list I will certainly be interested in it also.
