Green thumb-ish indoor banana tree question (with pic). Quickie.

I've had this banana tree plant for over ten years now. Just re-potted it last year, and it's getting bigger and bigger. Which is lovely. Only problem is that now most of the new growth leaves don't 'unfurl' all the way into a fully exposed leaf. They start to open, but then begin ripping away from the end of the leaf, leaving just these ugly, sharp, tightly coiled points exposed. See pic here
showing one of the unfurled leaves. Any ideas or suggestions to remedy?
