Nonlinear Functions of Unit Roots

Hi folks,

suppose we have

x(t)=b*x(t-1)+u(t), t=1,...T

where u(t) is an iid(0,1)-process. Consider

S=\sum_{i=1}^T g(x(t))*v(t)

where g(.) is a function and v(t) is another iid(0,1) process independent of
u(t). For |b|<1 and plim ((sum_{i=1}^T g(x(t))^2)/T ) =q , we have

S/\sqrt(T) \to N(0,q^2).

What is if b=1, that is the unit root case? If g(z)=z, we have the usual
superconsistency results based in Brownian Motions, i.e. mixed gaussian
distributions. But if g(.) is an arbitrary function? I suppose that S
standardized by an appropriate factor is further mixed gaussian. Can someone
give me an answer or some literature for this problem?

Thank you in advance
