I've had this happen to me - my hair is not as long as yours (near MBL) but long enough that it can get caught in the back of the dryer. I realized that it was not the section I was diffusing but hair next to it that was hanging down and getting caught. So now when I diffuse, I try to keep the back of the dryer away from my head - this means I don't diffuse upside down as much, but more just tip my head to the side so that the rest of my hair isn't hanging down over the dryer.
