I *think* Russian does this but don't know of any example.
Maybe "s"est'" (perfective of est' "to eat") vs. "sestra" ("sister")?
The former being sjest_j and the latter being s_jestra, I believe.
And Polish makes a difference between affricate and stop+fricative; I
believe the canonical example is czysta ("quiet"?) with /t_S/ and
trzysta ("three hundred"?) with /tS/. Also the first time I've come
across such a phonemic distinction.
