Hi Geoff,

  Chimera freezes up for me after I open diamond.pdb and then try
to show it as ball and stick or sphere.  It doesn't freeze up with
wire display style.  When it freezes I use:

	% ps -xwww | grep python2.2
	3676  ??  R      0:44.37 /Users/goddard/Applications/Chimera-X11-1700.app/Contents/Resources/bin/python2.2 /Users/goddard/Applications/Chimera-X11-1700.app/Contents/Resources/share/__main__.pyp
	% kill 3676

The Chimera executable is python2.2 and this just kills Chimera, not
the X server.  It doesn't appear in the Force Quit dialog because it is
not a native Aqua windows application.

  Are you using Chimera build 1700 (March 27, 2003)?  The Chimera
Help/Version Info menu entry will tell you which version you have.

  I'll look into why Chimera 1700 is freezing on diamond.pdb.
