Anybody had a problem with reference from previous landlord?

Following my last questions in the thread Owner living in building - good or bad? having gone unanswered as of yet - probably because I asked too much in general, a more specific question to help me get a better picture:

Any of you ever had (or know someone who had) trouble getting a new apartment because of a bad (or no) reference from the previous landlord? If so, what was the reason, how bad was it, and how did you solve the problem?

I'm really interested as I'm not sure what I'll be getting, how much I will like it after a while, and whether I'll want to stay after a year or move to another apartment. And if the owner lives there it may be even more difficult.

Of course any general words of wisdom on the subject are also appreciated.
