[Chimera-users] ViewDock: flexible receptor residues in different chains

This should be fixed in tomorrow's daily build (anything dated March 9 
or later).  ViewDock will reads chain identifier and insertion code 
along with residue sequence.  Consecutive residues with different chain 
identifiers will not have a bond between them.  The only thing I'm not 
sure about are the missing bonds.  Can you please take a look and see if 
there are still missing bonds in the new version?  Thanks.
