Turbo Snails Destructive?

I've read in two different places that turbo snails have been known to topple rockwork when they get bigger. I can't imagine it would be that common, but I've got a 30-inch tall tank and would hate for some of it to topple from that height.

Has anyone ever really had that problem? I'm planning on ordering a few turbos to help with hair algae.

I have a HUGE turbo snail, and he has never toppled anything over. My rockwork is placed on top of other pieces sometimes loosely.
