Rollers (from a roller bearing) in an R80 sump

Is it possible for a bearing to let go and drop a couple of rollers (not balls) into the sump (noticed during first oil change)?

I somehow repressed this unhappy memory and have been riding the R65 (mono) about for the last few months. Don't really want to fire the old girl up again until it's figured out.

It couldn't be as silly as the PO using the sump as a parts tray and then refitting it with bits still in there. It's not like there was a torque wrench in there too.
