I wouldn't say common, but I've had it happen to me.
A common one is the timing chain tensioner plug or the timing cover gasket, which IS in the area of the water pump (directly above the water inlet on the water pump). If it were that there would be oil all over the alternator, p/steering pump and drive belt, makes one hell of a mess and is a real P.I.T.A. to get at.

Or did you mean 'Oil pump'? as the water pump is nowhere near the wishbone. :)
