Just for the sake of my reputation, I am NOT using the rip fence while making cross cuts. Carloz brings up a good point about tilting the blade to make the cut. I have had trouble with blade deflection doing that on a miter saw in the past, but it would have to be a safer cut due to a larger surface area in contact with the tablesaw. In this situation, it was the rounded edge allowing the cutoff, long or short, to rotate into the leading teeth. It makes a loud pop as the piece is pushed against the table and propelled out much like a golfing iron forces the ball against the ground and out… right towards water.
