One thing it looks like you are missing is adding contact joints to
the world when they collide, and removing them afterwards. Maybe
s.Collide() does that already, though.

I have experimented with Tao.Ode (which just wraps the C ODE dll) and
have had problems in this area too. Even after adding the contact
joints, collisions didn't seem to matter. My sphere object always
falls through my ground object :(

Hopefully someone can help analyze what's missing in your code and I
can apply it to mine.
