This kind of error is usually due to a buggy graphics driver. Please file
a bug using chimera's Help / Report a Bug dialog so the chimera bug
database will have a record of the buggy graphic driver version, then
update your graphics driver (do not use yum, use the vendor's graphics
driver installer), and then follow up the bug with whether or not that
fixed it (presumably it will).
