**Summary:**Let $\Leins$ be the predual of a von Neumann algebra with a finite faithful normal trace. We show that a bounded sequence in $\Leins$ converges to $0$ in measure if and only if each of its subsequences admits another subsequence which converges to $0$ in norm or spans $\leins$ {\it almost isometrically}. Furthermore we give a quantitative version of an essentially known result concerning the perturbation of a sequence spanning $\leins$ isomorphically in the dual of a $C^*$-algebra.
