comment Stability of rotation of a rectangular prism
@dmckee: You may appreciate Terry Tao's answer to this question on Math Overflow: mathoverflow.net/questions/81960/… (also linked at the end of JoeHobbit's answer). I find it quite satisfying (albeit a bit embarrassing to have a mathematician provide such a clear, physical answer). It's a lot of words, but well worth going through!

comment Stability of rotation of a rectangular prism
@fffred: I think Terry Tao's answer on MathOverflow (the one I presume you are referencing) works. For case (1), a displacement of the light masses $m$ out of the plane of rotation would be countered by the centrifugal force. Only in case (3) is this displacement amplified.
