I have never heard of a paper being withdrawn.
Well. I have. It is a part of the normal scientific process. There are always mistakes and withdrawn papers. I can give you any number of examples in biology, physics, cosmology, etc. Withdrawn papers is a good indicator that errors are being spotted, that some healthy criticism is present.
