The seemingly straightforward stability issue in three-dimensional homogeneous continuous piecewise linear systems with two linear zones is considered. The only equilibrium at the origin, being in the separation plane of the linear zones, has two linearization matrices. For the important case where both matrices have complex eigenvalues with the whole spectrum in the left half plane, the possible counter-intuitive instability of the origin is proved. Some sufficient conditions for the global asymptotic stability of such systems are also shown.
