Dear Dr. Molnar,
All chains present in structures open in Chimera should be listed.
If two chains have the same ID, however, they will not have separate
listings in Select/Chain.  Another thing that might be confusing is
that residues can be assigned to chains named "het" or "water": 
Any HETATM residue that does not already have a chain identifier 
is assigned to chain HET, unless the residue is named WAT or HOH, 
in which case it is assigned to chain WATER.

Additional possibilities are a bug or something strange with the
input files.  If you have some input files that demonstrate
the problem (and don't mind sharing them), you could send them
to me or to chimera-bugs at cgl.ucsf.edu along with a short explanation
of how to duplicate the problem (how files were opened, what order).
