Clones hitting invisible object?

I'm stumped. I started with a capsule. Made it editable. Used the knife loop to cut off the top. Now I have the bottom of a capsule. I'm trying to show a bunch of small spheres falling into and filling up the capsule. I created the Cloner, placed it above the empty capsule. When they drop, they start falling away, not going into the capsule, as though the part I deleted is still there. I tried the same with a cube. Deleted the top, but when the spheres fall, they land on the "invisible" top of the cube, as though it were still there.
I'm totally confused.
Thanks.

For the dynamics tag of the capsule, set the "Shape" parameter to "Static Mesh."



For more info, right click on "Shape" and select "Show Help." That will bring up the Help files and explain what is happening.
