Did the Steering Gear Jam?

I understand there was loose ice floating in the immediate area. Could this jam the steering gear and prevent her from turning? Here is an article from July 1912 about the Olympic and a problem with her steering. Does anyone know what caused this mishap and if this was down to human error or a fault with the steering mechanism, and could this have played a major role in the Titanic disaster?
