	Are you actually getting these messages with PDB files from the RCSB?  Normally, you get these messages when using files with a lot of non-standard PDB records in them -- i.e. from PDB files generated by programs or scripts.  If you are getting them from a standard PDB entry please let me know which ID it is.
	That said, you are probably also getting these messages when opening the file with Fetch, but the messages are going to the reply log so you aren't noticing them unless you have the reply log open, whereas if you are running a script from IDLE or the from a Unix command line, they are going to IDLE or standard error respectively, so you are seeing them all immediately.
	You options are:

(1) Fix the PDB file to remove the non-standard records, or
(2) Use the '--silent' flag if you are running the script from the command line, to suppress the messages, or
(3) Set chimera.silent to True before running the script in IDLE to achieve the same result as (2)
