In L&L, this happened to Esme Weatherwax but only because she was so close to the other universes' Esme's.
As for the original question, there are an INFINITE number of Trousers of Time, but we only see one or two.
Mhnn... I rather think we see a few more. Maybe even slip around within a story.
For example (okay, it's rather a wild guess) : Sould Music
We get told instory the events of the book never happened. Yet afterwards everyone still seems to remember the events quite clearly. So, maybe we here can say we slipped from Leg A in which the events happened as they happened to leg B where Buddy never went to AM and then moved into C where Buddy moved to AM, events happened, but Buddy survived in the end but no alteration of time happened.
Then, maybe a harder to spot example, Ponder:
In L&L he's said to be rather chubby (don't have the quote on hand) while in Last Continent the subtext gives it that he's skinny. Granted, LC also tells us he's a great swimmer, but even though he got off his lazyness we where told about in L&L, he didn't go sporty. So how did he loose that much weight, especially with the UU meals around?
(IMHO he's still neatly chubby, just 'cause it's cute
