I don't know about your other questions but I have some info on this  
one.  Until recently, Chimera was putting an implicit "wait 1" after  
every line of a script, including comment lines, blank lines, and  
lines that already end in an explicit "wait" of some sort.  Now it  
does not wait after those three types of lines.  Depending on the  
structure of your script, this behavior may have been causing the  
"hesitation" you describe.  If you get a daily build  
(www.cgl.ucsf.edu/chimera and follow the "Daily Builds" link) this  
behavior is fixed there.
