At Postique we use over-the-top capstan wrap.  Our machine is  the original
Jump-Free demonstration Ursa from NAB '92 floor.  At commissioning we were
told to use over-the-top for improved stability by Rank folks.  Indeed, the
vertical stability is improved with the minimal wrap, *although*, the gate
exit roller did cause some scratching on a frame or two where the  film
motion was reversed due to exit roller inertia and small film contact area
for friction.

We tried a deep cut exit roller for a while, but now run sans gate exit
roller.  The over-the-top wrap now works well for us with no ill effects.
