You could sample datasets from your model, estimate a new model in
each of these datasets and store the residuals. These will give you an
idea of how the distribution of residuals should look like when the
model is correct. Graphically comparing these with the actual
residuals (e.g. using Nick Cox's -qplot- which you can find by typing
in Stata -findit qplot-) would be a good way of making your suspicions
