Hi Tom:

I'm fairly certain this particular pronunciation pattern is not commonplace among native Chinese speakers. I myself am one of them and know a lot more. I can't speak for the general pronunciation pattern because I have never studied it, but what I can be sure of is this: it has to do with how English was taught. If someone received English education in China and was without a native English speaking teacher/tutor, most of the times, they'd end up with weird pronunciation patterns. Those are easy for some to correct once they settle in an English speaking communities but some would keep those patterns for a lot of reasons.
