[ODE] very close contact points

It's generally a good idea to filter contacts. For example, the trimesh 
geometry may generate multiple coincident contact points.

To be nit-picking: it's not the geometries that have problems with close 
contacts; it's the solver, which only sees dContact joints, which you 
create. While you often create them after having run collision 
detection, it's conceptually separate from the collision detection.
