Arrow MakeRool command can't keyframe it

Hello guys !
I'm making a cube rolling with the Mel command "MakeRoll"

I used the line
"makeRoll pCube1 0.0 true 1.0;"

and my cube works nice... but I can't animate it !!

I mean... also if I keyframe just the Translate X or Z
when I play my animation the cube float and doesn't rotate anymore.

Do you have any soggestion ??
How can I animate it (keyframe it) ??
thank you !!

Ha, what a funny command!
Totally random and fun.

I think you might have mistakenly broken the connection to TranslateY.
Is it still purple in the channel box? I can animate it just fine in X and doesn't even break if I accidentally key translate Y. Maybe try recreating the makeRoll expression.
Should work no problem.
One suggestion would be to run: Edit > Keys > Bake Simulation[] once the animation is working for you...better to not try to have expressions driving stuff when you render.

Good luck...hopefully that helps.
BTW I am using Maya 2011.
