[ODE] gravitational force / unstable joints

Good evening all!
(At least that's what is in my country...)

Today I decided to adjust my construct to more realistic parameters. But 
I switched the worldgravity to -9.81, nearly all joints collapsed!

That is my biggest problem with ODE, the joints just don't stick 
together, even
with dParamSuspensionCFM=1e-5 for my Hinge2.

Even at a gravitation of -1 I could severe problems with the joints, not 
my fixed joints stay together! I know I shouldn't use them, but my 
Universal joints
danced around like drugged ravers although I set histop as well as 
lowstop to 0!

best regards,
