Pim's player fouled a player of the opponent behind theri goal line. Now they had to take the free kick, knowing that it would result in an own goal

This problem commonly affects throw-ins which, when taken from off the pitch, immediately lead to the opposition's throw-in! The above quotes also show there can sometimes be more serious consequences
I wonder if this problem could be behind the corner bug too, where its sometimes taken from the wrong end ?
I've also known the reverse of this problem when my shot hits the post and comes back into play but a goal kick is nevertheless awarded !!!
Can anybody add any other situtations to this list ?
