I never claimed it was something one might do often but there could be a situation whereby someone's ratcheting (possibly to clear an obstacle). Of course one would not attempt to shift while doing this but I imagine that the combination of attempting to shift while backpedalling could compress the PowerLink both logitudinally and laterally thereby causing a seperation of the sideplates... especially with a sticking unlubed chain. It's a longshot I realise.
