(I assume you meant --nostatus)

For me the simple test of a file with:
> import os
> os.system("chimera --nogui --nostatus")
works just fine.  So it's probably something about your particular setup 
that is tickling this bug.

It might be the directory that you're running the script in, it might 
have python modules/packages that conflict with chimera's.  Or it might 
something in the environment.  Chimera tries to protect its python from 
the user's environment, but maybe we missed something. Also double check 
that the chimera you're invoking is the one you're expecting -- try 
using an absolute path to chimera while you're debugging this.
