Dear Xavier,
I’m not an expert on this kind of thing, so I’m forwarding to the chimera-users list.

(Sending to the list is always recommended… I will still answer it if I can, just as fast!)

Although I don’t know if it’s related, maybe you should get a newer version of Chimera. Using Chimera versions 1.11.2 and 1.12 daily build on both a laptop and a desktop running Sierra, I do not have this problem.
