We argue that, for a square lattice and a nearly half-full band, the RPA (RPA) in general tends to give an instability towards antiferromagnetism with qAF = (p,p)/a, regardless of whether the Fermi surface (FS) is nested or not for this wave vector. Specifically, for a one-band model of YBa2Cu3O6+x, with its well-known nearly square, [10]-oriented FS, we find the real part of the Lindhard susceptibility to have a broad max. at qAF for electron and hole-dopings up to about 10%. This hitherto overlooked result has implications for current electronic models of high-temp. supercond.
