[Chimera-users] model panel: long 'clicking time'

I’ve now changed the code so that the model panel rebuild is only delayed if the number of open models changes, so clicking the show/hide button will not be delayed.  Available in the next daily build.

This was slowing down scripts that opened/closed lots of models and therefore this delay was inserted to allow multiple open/close/change events to result in only one rebuild of the table (or at least, fewer rebuilds).  I need to think about how to remedy the visually slower response you’re seeing.
