Setting velocities while simulatig is strongly discouraged. Instead of
setting velocities directly use forces. See also the FAQ of the ODE-Manual.
BTW: If you are using a real robot, you normaly have either a position or a
current (==force) interface. So, stick to forces to have a realistic
behaviour and a full-flavoured "realistic" set of problems. ;-)
