A recent paper [A. V. Kolesnikov and K. B. Efetov, Phys. Rev. Lett. 83, 3689 (1999)] predicts a two-scale behavior of wave function decay in disordered wires in the crossover regime from preserved to broken time-reversal symmetry. We have tested this prediction by a transmission approach, relying on the Borland conjecture that relates the decay length of the transmittance to the decay length of the wave functions. Our numerical simulations show no indication of two-scale behavior.
