[Chimera-users] Possible image saving bug

Hi Wally,
I also had this tiling problem.  We think it may be something about  
X11 in Mac OS 10.5 (possibly just 10.5.4), as the problem has not been  
observed with 10.4/X11.

Two workarounds that were successful in my case (I don't know if they  
will fix all instances of the problem):

(A) simply show the Command Line before saving the image.  I tried  
hiding it again after that, but then the problem reoccurred, albeit in  
a more subtle fashion.

(B) save the session, restore it in the aqua version of Chimera (still  
on Mac OS 10.5.4 but not using X11) and save the image.  Yeah, (A) is  
easier, but I didn't discover that one until this morning, after  
receiving your mail.

I hope these solutions are general!  Sorry about the inconvenience,
