Just a few comments below, since I also ran into similar issues creating and
updating the MD-11 aero file.

Yes, this reflects a recent change in JSBSim, which hasn't traversed it's way
back into aeromatic yet.

Not really a bug: This how JSBSim expected things to be, until a couple of
weeks ago. It took me a while to figure this one out. ;-)

Aarggg, this sounds exactly like how the MD11 was behaving initially, and
which I thought was fixed. Moving the main gears forward and backward a
little bit might help. Try have a look at the "MD11" and related threads in
the FlightGear-Devel mailing archives for some more information (April
through Jue of this year IIRC).

For those of you wondering, I've collected quite a few changes to the MD11,
but last weeks were fairly busy, so I didn't get a chance to do the final
polising up and send them out for CVS inclusion. Hopefully this weekend I'll
get to it.
