configuration Buoyancy Pump top bearing fail, glider sank to bottom, saved by weight.

Talked to Peter Collins. Apparently a wiggle or something prior to the problem segment could have caused this. Its just a mechanical failure of the lead screw and bearings. Usually happens during over-extensions or jams. Sometimes reducing pump throw a bit could prevent.
