I guess it would depend on the drum scanner as to how tight an arch it would
be rolled into, which may depend on the size of the drum on the drum
scanner. However, from what I had heard about the problem, the fracturing
was usually never that visible to the naked eye unless you pacifistically
looked for it and when the print was already arched and never bad enough
that bits of the print flaked off due to the fracturing.
Tony look at it this way, if the repro house does tightly arch the print
causing it to flack apart, you could sue them for damaging the print. :-)

They will be rolling it up to go into a drum scanner. OTOH if bits flake
that would be a plus - sabotage and revenge combined:).
