Just a matter of time. If you've got a rear derailleur and no chain retention device up front, the chain will definitely come off eventually.

David Millar rode in the Tour with one front ring and nothing else during a prologue a couple of years ago. His chain came off and he lost. Every bike mechanic I know was stunned that a pro wrench would make that kind of mistake. It was stunning.
