[ODE] wobbling hinged door

What are the contacts of your door? Does it interpenetrate the wall? 
That would make it unhappy.

Adding a second hinge would just create fighting constraints, and lead 
to a less stable system. That's actually something that's mentioned in 
the ODE documentation (but not that particular case).
