Knock sensor failure?

Hi Y'all,

I've been sitting here thinking...  (Miracles do sometimes happen.)

I'm sure that knock sensors have failed from time to time but I would 
expect that the normal failure mode would be that it simply stop putting 
out a signal.  However, has anyone experienced a knock sensor failure in 
which the knock sensor becomes overly sensitive and reports knocking to the 
ECU when none is actually happening?  Is there any direct way to determine 
if this might be the case or would it be just a "replace and try" procedure.
