I believe the command is working in your version. It does not compare
the two structures, it only reports how one file has been transformed
relative to the other in Chimera. If the coordinates in the two file
are already rotated relative to each other, Chimera would not detect
that. It would report a rotation only if you had moved one model
relative to the other in Chimera.
If the untransformed coordinates of the two structures are already
rotated relative to each other, to find out the rotation in Chimera
you could superimpose them, and THEN use measure to report what
relative transformation had been employed in the superposition.
I hope this makes sense,
