The equation of motion for the slow time dependence of convective rolls due to long-wavelength inhomogeneities is shown to have a singular dependence on the wave vector of the disturbance. Consequences for the skew varicose instability and the wave-number selection principle in textures of curved rolls suggested by Pomeau and Manneville are discussed.
