Let G be a finite group and let u be a torsion unit in V (ZG). (i) If u has order pn , then εx (u) = 0 for every x of G whose p-part is of order strictly greater than pn . (ii) If x is an element of G whose p-part, for some prime p, has order strictly greater than the order of the p-part of u, then εx (u) = 0.
