Looking at the code, a logical cause for this would be a zero mass, causing
a NaN body_invMass;

I expect that if you do an...
...in that code, it will be triggered.


        // compute the velocity update:
        // add stepsize * invM * fe to the body velocity

        IFTIMING (dTimerNow ("compute velocity update");)
        for (i=0; i<nb; i++) {
                dReal body_invMass = body[i]->invMass;
                for (j=0; j<3; j++) body[i]->lvel[j] += stepsize *
body_invMass * body[i]->facc[j];
                for (j=0; j<3; j++) body[i]->tacc[j] *= stepsize;
                dMULTIPLYADD0_331 (body[i]->avel,invI + i*12,body[i]->tacc);

Zapp: April 13th. Point 2.
