I suspect you intended to concatenate the two parts of z, i.e.
z <- c(rnorm(n*0.95,2,3), rnorm(n*0.05,2,9))
You shouldn't ignore the warning.
By the way, it's not true for every n that my expression for z will
always give something of length n. It would be safer to do the
calculation as
m <- round(n*0.95)
z <- c(rnorm(m,2,3), rnorm(n-m,2,9)
