Hi Kevin,

   I tried coloring PDB 1a0m surface (Actions / Surface / show) by 
bfactor, saving a session, restarting, opening session, and the colors 
were correctly restored in Chimera versions 1.3 and 1.4 (daily build). 
Maybe you are using an older Chimera?  Chimera menu Help / About UCSF 
Chimera will tell you the version.  Another possibility is that you are 
display some other kind of surface (e.g. a density map isosurface) where 
the coloring is not recorded in the session.
