Yes... Many times boards over 4" wide boards in glue-ups... and it has bitten me in the behind. I usually do my glue-ups with 2-3" wide boards. More luck with that.

I still chance it every once in a while, It well dried and if I really like the pieces, the grain and knurling... But I know before I start that that risk is there.

cupping sounds like flat sawn wood...
narrow rips it is...

Cup Defect
Rip a wide, cupped board into narrow flat sections.... Rip each piece slightly wider than you need, then re-rip or joint the edges square to the face. You even can glue these sections back together to create a wide board...
