[ODE] joints - parent/child issues

I'm having some trouble with ODE joints. I changed from a ball and 
socket joint to a universal joint + a hinge joint (using an 
intermediary body) since it seemed to be more stable than the ball 
and socket. Now when I use the dJointAddTorque functions the bodies 
do not act the way I would want them to - the parent/child 
relationships don't seem to be working the way I would expect. 
Basically I want to be able to control a wing attached to a main body 
using pitch roll and yaw with dJointAddTorque. Any help regarding 
this would be great.
