    Systems for which each constant input gives rise to a unique globally attracting equilibrium are considered. A counterexample is provided to show that inputs which are only asymptotically constant may not result in states converging to equilibria (failure of the converging-input converging state, or ``CICS'' property).

    A measurable function x from a subset J of R into a metric space X is said to be C-meagre if C is non-empty subset of X and, for every closed subset K of X disjoint from C, the preimage of K under x has finite Lebesgue measure. This concept of meagreness, applied to trajectories, is shown to provide a unifying framework which facilitates a variety of characterizations, extensions or generalizations of diverse facts pertaining to asymptotic behaviour of dynamical systems.
