I got maybe one in eight failures in a batch of 120 or so I tested and sorted. I forget the exact numbers but it was getting higher than I really wanted... Those were mostly from A bunch just cracked in the base for no good reason.

The Svetlana tubes come from the same factory as the other Russian ones. ie they're the same although I suppose its possible that Svetlana select theirs. Personally, in hindsight I would say if you want to build an OTL use something cheaper like 6C19s (and hey, you can get those from Gintaras too!) and get more efficient speakers... :-)
