We've have had one person mention a similar problem on a Vitsa laptop 
computer, but we have been unable to reproduce it on our Vista systems. 
Please file a bug report using our online bug submission form at 
<http://www.cgl.ucsf.edu/chimera/docs/feedback.html>.  And please include 
what kind of computer, its model number and what kind of graphics it has.

If I had a computer that behaved like yours, I would try two things: 
first, I'd try updating the graphics driver, and if it is a laptop with 
Intel graphics, use the latest driver from Intel (Vista graphics drivers 
are buggier than Windows XP drivers, so update often).  If that didn't 
work, I'd guess that chimera is somehow being affecting by another 
program.  So then I'd try disabling all of the startup programs using the 
msconfig program and if chimera works after that, turn them back on one at 
a time until I found the problem program.

Please file that bug report and please let me know what you figure out,
