Abstract: A sequence of functions from a Baire space to the reals is said to converge in category iff every subsequence has a subsequence which converges on all but a meager set. We show that if there exists a Souslin tree, then there exists a nonatomic Baire space such that every sequence which converges in category converges everywhere on a comeager set. This answers a question of Wagner and Wilczynski who proved the converse.
