## Abstract

It has been conjectured that a certain operator T belonging to the group ff of invertible elements of the algebra Alg Z of doubly infinite uppertriangular bounded matrices lies outside the connected component of the identity in W. In this note we show that T actually lies inside the connected component of the identity of & .
