Me too - at least when the ccd is built directly from disk partitions.
I did once get a crash when I was trying to layer vnd and ccd atop one
another in a complicated way, but it was an instant crash, not a
bite-you-someday-down-the-line crash.

And this from someone who has a machine that can't run normally without
its ccd - it's got seven 80MB drives, of which one is root-and-swap,
one is /usr, and the other five are ccd-concatenated and hold
everything else the machine has.
