After undocking from Mir, there was an over flight inspection of the station. On at least two occasions, the Soyuz collided with the Kristall module of Mir. It turned out the crew had taken a few extra "souvenirs" with them, which overloaded the Soyuz capsule and interfered with the attitude control system. Strict packing guidelines were enforced thereafter.
