copy/paste frames problem

Hey guys, here i come with yet another weird problem.
I made a walking animation but when i try to move it through the scene using cycle with offset for the feet, they not only move forward, they also start moving up. The waist controller has also the same problem but it goes down, so eventually the character ends up walking like a kosac.
I also removed the cycle with offset option and started to copy and paste keyframes but when i paste it the values for the Y axis is different. It starts going up (or down, in the case of the waist controller).
I can understand if it were just a cycle issue but i the problem persist even when copy/pasting the keyframes!
Any ideas? Should i call an exorcist?

are you using anim layers or is everything on base layer?

One reason could be that when you cycle you need to make sure the first and last frame has a key or it will cycle earlier than the loop.
One more thing, sometimes you need to cycle with offset, sometimes just cycle. It could be some of your controllers need to change the cycle type.

While copying and pasting ... go and check the local axis(object). Its important.
