I can't tell you how many times I'm used to "releasing" my camera with both hands and letting the strap catch it as common practice. The problem comes in when the strap is NOT around my neck. Time for quick hands and grabbing the strap inched before it hits the ground

Yup, dropped a lens in Greece and tried to break the fall with the top of my foot, unfortunately I was a hair too late and kicked it across the concrete floor.  I sure learned my lesson so now I make sure I either sit my @ss down, or put my bag on the floor and make the lens change.  And as you mentioned - make sure the camera strap is around my neck.  Very expensive lesson.
