Your first check might be to see in the mean and sd are "reasonably" 
close. Next approach would be to see if the `qqplot` of that vector has 
an arguably straight-line relationship with a random draw from a Poisson 
random generator function with the same mean.



And do remember that Rhelp is a plain-text mailing list.
