[R] rnorm

Thanks to all who replied to my query about the "normality" of rnorm.  I am 
using R 1.1.1 (the version released last week) under Windows 98.  It has 
been unusually hot here and I noticed that the CPU fan seemed to be running 
at high speed for a long time.  The CPU probe that I use to monitor the 
temperature emitted a warning shortly after I sent off the email.  After 
shutting my system down, letting it cool, and then rebooting, all seems 
well with rnorm.  Since I have seen some pretty weird results with Excel 
whenever the CPU overheated, I am assuming I just encountered a similar 
phenomenon while running R.

[These new laptops running low voltage mobile PIII CPU's still run super hot]
