    No, I don't think so. There's zero indication for that to believe, both
    from a technical and from a human perspective. I don't know wether they
    were concerned or not after they had learned about the debris incident, my
    guess is they weren't too concerned, if at all. But I'm sure they didn't
    sense anything unusual whatsoever until well in the entry interface, and
    they certainly didn't _know_ anything until they lost control and broke up.
    CU!	Markus
