My question is whether anyone else has heard of such a sound change,

Hate to tell you this, but a friend of mine in the linguistics
department down here, born and bred in Texas, has this sound
change, and it's allegedly a common feature of Texas English.
I can't comment on the specifics--he just told me about it the
other day--but the word "button" was mentioned specifically.
