Abstract. Fava's weak type $L\log L$ estimate for strong two-parameter ergodic maximal operators associated to pairs of commuting non-periodic measure-preserving transformations is shown to be sharp. Moreover, given a function $\phi $ on $[0,\infty )$ that is positive, increasing, and $o(\log(x))$ for $x \rightarrow\infty $ as well as a pair of commuting invertible non-periodic measure-preserving transformations on a space $\Omega $ of finite measure, a function $f \in L\phi(L)(\Omega )$ is constructed whose associated multiparameter ergodic averages fail to converge almost everywhere in the unrestricted sense.
