Ford EcoBoost engine - will it suffer DMF problems?

I understand that the Ford 999cc EcoBoost engine is mated to a dual mass flywheel, in order to iron out the imbalance of the 3-cylinder configuration.

In view of the history of dual mass flywheel problems in other applications, would a prospective purchaser of a Ford with this engine need to be concerned as to potential problems?

DMFs are rarely a problem with petrol engines. The problems come from the torque characteristics of diesel engines.
