Two recently reported treatments [J. M. Porrà et al., Phys. Rev. A 44, 4866 (1991) and I. L¿Heureux and R. Kapral, J. Chem. Phys. 88, 7468 (1988)] of the problem of bistability driven by dichotomous colored noise with a small correlation time are brought into agreement with each other and with the exact numerical results of L¿Heureux and Kapral [J. Chem. Phys. 90, 2453 (1989)].
