We show some integrable Hamiltonian systems in dimension 4 with linearly
stable equilibria which are Lyapunov unstable and do not have asymptotic  motions.
No explicit example of such weak instability seems to be known in the
Our systems belong to a class with some rare elements which have stable
equilibria and isochronous periodicity of all orbits, superintegrable
systems. Some of them can be obtained by means of Noether's variational theorem too.
