<p><b>Abstract</b>—In a recent paper in this journal, the so-called <it>stack-based allocation</it> (SBA) algorithm is claimed to be, at worst, <tmath> O(B^2) </tmath> expensive. In this paper, we present an exception for which the time complexity of SBA is at least <tmath> O(B^3) </tmath>. Furthermore, we point out the discrepancy in the complexity analysis.</p>
