Are Ambi Safeties a hidden danger?

I've been reading some other forums where a discussion of the ambi safety is in question. On person spoke to how he would brush against something and the right side safety would move from "safe" to "fire" position.

Is this a common occurrence?

Assuming the grip safety is still engaged, the gun should still be safe to carry without an accidental discharge in the butt. Or, am I mistaken?

Anyone had a similar problem or concern?

Two of my 1911's have the ambi-safety and three of them don't. Not a factor to me either way. Back when I was shooting three gun matches a lot the pistol I always used did not have ambi safety and I never missed having it.
