Hi Sharada,
	I fixed this problem on November 22nd, which means it made it into  
the 1.2318 snapshot release.  Now, that release is only available for  
Linux and Mac but I'm guessing you're using Linux so you should be  
okay if you download it.  If you're using some other platform let me  
know and I'll send you a file with the fix in it that you can drop  
into your Chimera.
