Abstract: We construct families of rank two bundles $\mathcal{E}_t$ on $\mathbf{P}^4$, in characteristic two, where for $t\neq 0$, $\mathcal{E}_t$ is a sum of line bundles, and $\mathcal{E}_0$ is non-split. We construct families of rank two bundles $\mathcal{E}_t$ on $\mathbf{P}^3$, in characteristic $p$, where for $t\neq 0$, $\mathcal{E}_t$ is a sum of line bundles, and $\mathcal{E}_0$ is non-split.
