The MD Movie tool does not support session saving at this time.   
However, what this means is that you should still be able to save a  
session but when restored the session will show only the structure and  
so forth and not the tool interface.  If Chimera crashes when you save  
a session involving a trajectory then that is a bug and you should  
report it with the "Report a Bug" entry in the Help menu, along with  
whatever steps are needed to reproduce the crash.
