My money is on hard braking being the cause of most failures. I imagine that, under hard braking, twisting forces will act on a fulcrum at the bottom of the headstock, causing the tubes around the top to be in tension, and it seems the SS frame strength around that area is marginal in these circumstances, so some fail.
