I've seen the cable head pop out on Ultegra & 105 shifters, but never on a MTB group yet. PITA, but I haven't seen one explode the shifter, so there's a slight positive. I chalked it up to shifting without pedaling combined with the tight arc the cable has to take around the spool.  Separate note, as soon as I saw the MS profile being trapezoidal as opposed to square, I knew Shimano won the freehub body race: Less expensive cassettes that won't gall into the hub body. Took 'em long enough to enter the fray, but slow and steady won the race.
