    If the pulsar and wd formed and evolved normally, couldn't a close encounter with a passing star disrupt the orbit of the less massive wd into an exotic orbit without too much trouble?

    Yes. So the further question is what is the frequency of such systems compared to the likelihood of such an encounter.
