    There is one addition - Matroshka
    http://www.esa.int/export/esaHS/SEMBM02PGQD_iss_0.html
    
    and http://lowdose.tricity.wsu.edu/2001mtg/abstracts/reitz.htm
    
    (NASA describes it as Matroyshka but all other references seem to use
    "Matroshka.")
    
    A web search on "Matroshka" will yield several other sources.
    
    I have not found the external dimensions of this experimental module but it
    does seem quite large and the shape seems to fit your picture- I think?
    
    So it seems that this observation may be described as a "phantom" one. :-)
    
    Incidentally NASA spaceflight site says that one of the tasks not completed
    was retrieval of a set of retroreflectors from Zvezda, which would assist
    the preparation of navigational data for the arrival of the new European
    supply ship next year.
