3TTT Death Stem

I know AVA stems have the reputation of being the famous "death stem" but check out the end of this 3TTT aero stem:
If this isn't an accident waiting to happen I don't know what is! Some shyster eBay seller was actually passing this off as a good stem. Are failures like this a problem with 3TTT stems also? They seem to share the same double slit expansion area with sharp corners at the top of the slits as AVA death stems do.
