Tom Goddard may have already pointed out that using the yellow '-' 
button will iconize Chimera and hide all it's windows.  If you are in 
the state were you've already hidden X11 and have the title-less 
windows showing, you can get the title bars back by unhiding X11 and 
using the yellow '-' button to iconize Chimera (the titleless windows 
are still there) and then un-iconize Chimera (the windows get their 
title bars back now).

I've put a workaround for this behavior in our current development 
version and it will be in the next release.  If you feel you really 
need it before then, I can send you instructions as to how to edit the 
python code (it's a one-line change).
