"Deep seeded" for "deep-seated"

This one’s already in the Eggcorn Database ( at http://eggcorns.lascribe.net/english/46/seed/ ), but I’ve never encountered it ‘til now, so thought I’d share my example for the enjoyment of others who may not have seen this one: ”...the Mallard band could have made it if it weren’t for the deep seeded distrust or animosity between Bill and Mark.” (from the book Beefheart: Through the Eyes of Magic by John “Drumbo” French)
