Try updating your chimera to the final 1.4 release, many bugs were found 
and fixed after the release candidates came out.  If you are still having 
problems, please use chimera's Report a Bug dialog in the Help menu to 
report the bug.

Sorry for that I did not describe the problem clearly. 
I'm using ver. 1.4 (build 29251) Chimera running on CentOS 5.x x86_64 Linux. I make a description here first and then I will try to report it through Help dialog. The term "lost focus" I have mentioned means that the centroid of molecule do not always be kept at the center of window.

Condition #1.  Open a protein structure, and then click FOCUS from ACTIONS of the main menu without selecting anything. After doing zoom-in, rotation, and then zoom-out, the position of molecular centroid migrated.

Condition #2. Open a protein and it's ligand in the same session followed by opening MODEL PANEL dialog. Selecting ligand and then focusing it from MODEL PANEL dialog, you will find Chimera do not focus the ligand once molecules are rotated. However, it works fine while selection and focusing are done through main menu.
