   There have been damping oscillations which smoothly
evolved to a standstill-like state.  This behavior
suggests that the ~1-d low-amplitude oscillations
sometimes seen in this system is related to
the standstill-like state, i.e. weak dwarf nova-type
instability close to the stability border.
Such behavior in this system has not been recorded
as far as I know.  Isogai-san, could you also
report on analysis of superhumps?
