[pstricks] pst-funct: strange psGaussI behavior

There is a strange behavior of \psGaussI function (part of pst-func
package). I understood this function was the integral of Gaussian density.
Running a simple test below I began to doubt:
Only the plots for mue=-1 and mue=-0.5 look according to my expectation
(which might be erroneous). Now,
1) For mue =-1.5, the plot has a horizontal asymptote at about 0.8.
This may show that psGaussI is not the Gaussian distribution function, but
rather a running integral of Gausian density, with the left integral
bound=-1.7 in my example. Am I right? If so, is it a way to plot a real
2) All plots for mue greater than -0.5 fluctuate, showing a behavior
far from the one I would expect from a distribution function, or even from
the integral of a density function. Changing Simpson parameter does not
change the story.
I will be grateful for any help
