Kickback happens when wood pinches the back of the blade. If the wood is clamped securely, that round edge is irrelevant. My guess is you were using the fence as a stop block or the clamp was loose and allowing the piece to vibrate and rotate into the blade or twist. Turning the piece around will make it more secure but the underlying cause is not being clamped securely or the cutoff being pinched.
