   I am using Mathematica 4.0 with Linux Debian.

   I am defining :

	g[x_] := Sum[
     Integrate[(-1)^k(2k - t)(2k - 1 < x <= 2k + 1)E[-(t - x)^2/2],
       t], {k, -Infinity, Infinity}]

To be clear, it the convolution of  arcsin(sin(x))/2Pi with exp(-x²/2)

	The I want to plot g[x] with Plot[g[x],{x,-10,10}] and Mathematica is 
insulting me. Bug of Mathematica of Bug of my using of it ?

	\!\(NSum::"nsnum" \(\(:\)\(\ \)\)
     "Summand (or its derivative) \!\(\[Integral] \(\(\[LeftSkeleton] 1 \
\[RightSkeleton]\)\)\) is not numerical at point \!\(k\) = \!\(46661\)."\)d1

General::"stop": "Further output of \!\(NSum :: \"nsnum\"\) will be \
suppressed during this calculation."

Plot::"plnr": "\!\(g[x]\) is not a machine-size real number at \!\(x\) = \

....... etc ...
