Racor With Too Much Water??

Someone told me that when your Racor becomes over-full with water (ie. I didn''t drain it off in time), a floating ball inside the filter automatically shuts off fuel flow (to avoid sending a ton of water into your engine) which results in a "running out of diesel" like stall.

It makes sense, but I''d never hear of this function. Can others confirm or deny this feature?? If it is true, shouldn''t my vacuum gauge have registered the interuption of fuel as a clog? How much water would it take to do this? Is it a feature on ALL Racors??? Please give me your thoughts.
