Hi Geoff,

  Could you send the diamond file that causes Chimera to freeze?
I'll check it out.  If you don't want that file to be seen by others,
send it just to me.

  In older versions of Mac OS I observed that when the X server
crashes the X application icons stay on the Dock even though the
application has died.  The only way to get rid of them was to restart
the Dock.  I find the process number and kill it and it restarts

    % ps -xw | grep Dock
    3402  ??  S      0:06.11 /System/Library/CoreServices/Dock.app/Contents/MacOS/Dock -psn_0_393217
    % kill 3402

It may be that you can't restart Chimera after restarting the X server
because the Dock thinks Chimera is still running.  Restarting the Dock
should resolve that.

  I see that Hide X11 removes the window frames from Chimera windows.
That looks like a Tk or Window Manager bug.  You can iconify all Chimera
windows by just iconifying the main window.  After using Hide X11 you
can get the dialog frames back by pressing the dialog close buttons and
then use the menus to bring back the needed dialogs.  Ick.
