[Chimera-users] Fixing MSMS crash

P. Qian sent me a PDB model that caused Chimera to crash when 
calculating an MSMS surface (menu Actions / Surface / show).  He got it 
not to crash by shifting the coordinates of all atoms (by moving and 
saving the PDB with "use untransformed coordinates" turned off, and 
reloading that file).  This is a little nicer than changing atom radii 
as we've advised in the past.  Not sure how often a simple shift (or 
rotation) avoids the crash though.
