These examples are hopefully exaggerated and or fictional. But as the saying goes, "it's all fun and games until someone gets hurt."
I had a question from a friend the other day about how to get out of a listing contract with an agent who was not performing and not responsive. Of course, I only got half the story, but the bottom line is that this lady was very unhappy with her real estate agent. 
While I can't advise someone to break a legal contract, nor solicit another agent's client, I did tell her that the only course of action was communication. She needed to articulate specifically how he was failing her. And how he could correct it. 
Saying "you aren't doing anything," is less specific than, "you haven't shown me any data on how many hits the virtual tour has had." Or worse, "you haven't done the virtual tour you promised to do."
I hope she is able to get this cleaned up and find satisfaction with the situation. If anything, it should make you pause before entering an agreement like this with someone.
I like to make sure people know exactly what they are getting when they work from me, and then make sure they get exactly what they bargained for. 
It's important to work with someone you like and trust. Take a little time to get to know a person before you hire them to handle such an important transaction for you.
