Any ideas on how to prevent this from happening?
The front lines will get twisted even when you use the "roto-head" to untwist the single flag-out line. What's happening is when you clip the leash onto the metal ring on the end of the flag-out line, it "locks" the line in place and prevents it from untwisting. After many, many loops, what starts to happen is the flag-out line twists up on itself (like winding up a spring). Once this twisting/winding has occurred, it transfers that twist to the front lines. You can fix it on the water by unclipping the leash and then untwisting the metal ring and thus the line, but it can take some time and it's kind of a bitch.
Having the metal ring set-up in suicide mode will also "lock" the line in place and cause the same problem. Here's the solution:
First is to undo the metal ring and then pull the flag-out line all the way out. Then start from the Y point end and work the line in between your fingers to untwist the line as you move towards the metal ring. You will see the line bind up as you do this, so it may require some "relief" twisting on the other end to unbind it.
I got really fed up with this untwisting task, so I just ordered a swiveled metal ring from Ozone. The swivel relieves the twisting problem so it doesn't transfer the twist to the flying lines:
