By slowly oscillating the temperature T through successively smaller cycles we have constructed a state of the pinned charge-density wave in TaS3 which is found to be free of relaxation for 8 h. We demonstrate the extreme sensitivity of this state to slight changes in T. Other properties of the hysteresis in the resistance-versus-temperature plane are described.
