in 2009, both djokovic and murray were 2-1 in their respective RR but didn't make it to the SF.
also ferreira in 1995 and gottfried in 1976.
nalbandian is indeed the only one to have reached the SF after losing 2 matches... but it also happened in the WTA year-end masters (and possibly also in double, but i'm lazy to check it at the moment).
