[Chimera-users] Chimera crashes when saving image

I am using Chimera alpha 1.4 build 27395 in Ubuntu 9.04 Jaunty 32 bits
version, in a laptop with Core2Duo at 2.4GHz each core, 4 Gb RAM.

When I use Save Image, sometimes if I increase the size of the image or
increase supersmple values, Chimera will crash with this terminal message:

X Error of failed request:  GLXBadPbuffer
  Major opcode of failed request:  128 (GLX)
  Minor opcode of failed request:  28 (X_GLXDestroyPbuffer)
  Serial number of failed request:  107906
  Current serial number in output stream:  107908

(The last 2 numbers will vary between crashes)

After restarting Chimera sometimes I can save the image using the same image
specifications, other times it will keep crashing and only reducing the size
or the Supersample numbers, I can save the image.

Is this laptop not powerful enough?
Do you need more information?
Should I try another build?

Thank you in advance

PS: My first message to the BB, so congratulations to the developers for an
excellent piece of software.
