We have been seeing a large number of bug reports from Windows laptops 
with Intel graphics (both XP and Vista, as well as desktop systems) with
the lastest chimera production release, 1.2540.

The symptoms include, but are not limited to, jumbled surface triangles, 
incorrect lighting, "unable to share data" errors, wglMakeCurrent 
failures, "pure virtual function called", and the inability to exit 
chimera.  The bug has been isolated to the Intel graphics driver and a 
workaround has been added to chimera.

The fixed version of chimera is available today in the Daily Builds 
section on the chimera website,
