Abstract: The escape rate of a 2-dimensional Brownian motion conditioned to be transient is determined to be $ P\{ X(t) < f(t)$ i.o. as $ t \uparrow \infty \} = 0$ or 1 according as $ \sum\nolimits_{n = 1}^\infty {{e^{ - n}}\log f({e^{{e^n}}}) < } $ or $ = \infty $. The result is used to construct a complex-valued Zygmund function--as a lacunary series--whose graph does not have $ \sigma $-finite linear Hausdorff measure. This contrasts the result of Mauldin and Williams that the graphs of all real-valued Zygmund functions have $ \sigma $-finite linear Hausdorff measure.
