It might depend on the condition of the rings, but my chain whip seems to like hopping off of sprockets. I've found that having a helper gently press the chain in toward the sprocket prevents this issue.
If you happen to have the chain off you can also loop an open length of chain over the rear cassette as usual, then around the front chain ring, but from the bottom instead of the top. Basically an S shape instead of a wide O that the chain normally makes. This lets you use the rear brake to hold it, but there shouldn't be a need to do that if you have a chain whip.
