A family of capillary surface configurations, shown in an earlier paper to be unstable for sufficiently small Bond numberB, is here shown to be unstable also forB sufficiently large. Numerical evaluations indicate that it is unstable for allB. Some numerical calculations of the corresponding container shapes are included.
