Thanks! I've been working hard, learning GLSL and writing my own  
state-sorting octree visibility graph. It's fun work, actually.

So, I tried out other primitives, and spheres, boxes and cylinders  
produce persistent contacts that make more sense.


My guess then is that this is a Capsule specific behavior.

I'll give a stab at the box_stack -- I'm generally cautious on OS X  
to do a make-install producing shared libs since it confuses Xcode  
mightily... but it's worth examining, so long as I remember to make  
uninstall when I'm done :p
