Something less likely to happen with a Rohloff XL and Tubus FAT Rack

A side note in a forum comment.
"Hi folks – I recently had a week commuting without either my Gazelle – (In for repairs with the battery struts on the rear rack failing) and my touring bike, Vivente Randonneur out of action due to the rear derailleur somehow getting caught up in the rear wheel spokes = completely buckled wheel and complete rear drive needing to be replaced…"

Rogues sticks can go between spokes, through rims etc. and rack bolts can sheer if not the rack itself, so there’s always failure modes, just hope they’re mitigated when in the middle of nowhere a long way from somewhere.
