Almost all bikes' chains will try to derail when crosschained even a little bit, while rolling backwards. Derailing while rolling backwards is even more of a problem on some bikes - bikes with bent derailleurs, a misaligned derailleur hanger, or just plain bad luck will derail while rolling backwards even when chain is parallel to bicycle centerline.
