But, when the figure eight is tied correctly it's fail safe. The bowline in this case just failed completely.

The bowline in this case wasn't tied correctly. Or at least, it wasn't finished correctly. Or rgold's theory is correct. Either way, the issue in this case won't be solved by requiring figure 8s.
