Never had one fall apart before, but the two parts are actually completely 
separate filters -- the high density (gin trash or string wound) fine filter 
bleeds back into the oil pan, the full flow paper filter feeds the engine oil 
passages.  There is a seal between them that the "post" goes through.

Unless the seal between the two halves was damaged, no harm done, they are just 
rolled together so you don't have two separate pieces to deal with.
