If have a long list of measured values in ixr.

-56.1317-3.03437 I

which is complex although it should be real (ixr is a list of 
real numbers) and it is different from the first term althugh
it should be the same. 

I also tried
1/Sqrt[Length[ixr]] *
  Sum[ixr[[tau]] Exp[2 Pi I(tau-1)(1-1)/Length[ixr]],{tau,Length[ixr]}]
which also gives -146.263

What is the problem?
