I have never heard of that spring failing. Bound to happen eventually.
I am a poster child for heavy use of Sram drive trains and the only spring I have broken was on an early generation Red derailleur - two in fact. That was a known issue.
I am most surprised that the shifter ratchet mechanisms haven't failed on any of my sets. I live in rolling terrain, ride a ton, and shift constantly. It's a good design I guess.
