Does water/ mousture in a bladder make it easier to pop?

Had a friends kite blow up in my hands yesterday while launching. I think the kite was overpumped, but I noticed a lot of moisture in the bladder.

Do you think having moisture in the bladder and the heating, cooling of the air and water at different rates make a bladder more likely to blow when over inflated?

Or does the water/moisture not matter at all?
