Quasinilpotent operator

Do you know any example of a quasinilpotent operator such that every its power is non-compact?

Of course direct sum of nilpotent operators(or Volterra operator) can by good. But I search for same known("classical") example.

This appears to be identical to mathoverflow.net/questions/84964/quasinilpotent-operator which was closed two days ago. It seems pointless to just repeat a question which the community felt was not suitable for this site... –  Matthew Daws Jan 7 '12 at 17:35
