OK, thanks for the info!

I've also noticed some problems with Convex/Convex collisions, but it's 
trickly to tell whether or not I'm passing the correct data to 
dCreateConvex as I can't find any documentation for it.

I'm using qhull to generate my hulls, which produces plane 
normals/offsets, points, and polygon lists, but I've no idea if the 
vertex IDs for the polys need to be specified in any particular order. 
I've tried the order that comes directly from qhull's FOREACHvertex_, 
and the reverse order, but neither seem to give results which are 
anything close to being stable.

Should I expect convex/convex collisions to work in 0.8?
