Abstract: If $ X$ is a separable infinite-dimensional Banach space, we construct a bounded and linear operator $ R$ on $ X$ such that

$\displaystyle A_R=\{x \in X, \Vert R^tx\Vert \rightarrow \infty \} $

is not dense and has a non-empty interior with the additional property that $ R$ can be written $ I+K$, where $ I$ is the identity and $ K$ is a compact operator. This answers two recent questions of Hájek and Smith.
