I have fallen on it a number of times now, both in aid and also free climbing. All of them smallish (read about 3m or 4m including rope stretch), and relatively inconsequential in the scheme of things.
The thing is, I have not studied just when it locked off or if there was any clove hitch slippage on the locked drum during those events, as my mind was preoccupied with other things at the time...
