I never heard of that issue, where are you reading this? And it sounds like a "kaboom" would be likened to a round going off before it leaves the barrel or while it is still in the gun...correct me if I'm wrong folks, and I probly am...
From most accounts, a "kaboom" is when the case head ruptures and causes a catastrophic failure during firing. Of course then there's the danger of a kaboom with "squib" loads but every gun is subject to that.
Google "Glock Kaboom", you'll see many results.
