You don't need to "lock" anything. Just pass a fixed value into 
the dWorldStep() function (or StepFast, or whatever function 
you're using). If you want your time step to always be 24 fps, 
then pass 1.0/24 as the elapsed time value.

Simulations are generally much more stable when you use a fixed 
time step, too, by the way.
