Can't say I have.... I guess you'll always get a lucky scramble if the algorithm for generating the scramble doesn't ensure a certain minimum amount of moves to solve it...

I once had a scramble for the 2x2 that was probably the luckiest possible. It was solved with R U R'. I didn't realize that would solve it, so my time still ended up being 1.87. It was pulled from JNetCube i think.

Hmm... What does 'lucky scramble' mean to you?

The luckiest possible scramble would give you a solved cube. That basically happened to me once, all corners were solved in a 3x3x3.

you can solve that scramble with one COLL algorithm, therefore it is kind of lucky

Yes, I am bored. Here it is: (cross on bottom)

D' B' F' U B2 D' L U F U' L R' F2 L' R' D B F2 D' U' L2 B2 F' U B2

If the cross is done a certain way, F2L will be extremely fast. My first time I did 14.00, although it should have been WAY faster...
