Hi Zahir,
It might just be display (like one bond not shown) without any affect on the calculations because of the format of the file output by Autodock Vina. Autodock Vina is not our program, so we cannot control the output format.  However, impossible for us to tell if that is the issue unless you send us an example file or files. You could use  menu: Help… Report a Bug and include brief explanation and your email address and attach the example file or session that shows the problem.  Keep in mind it might not be a Chimera bug.

After docking of our peptides using Autodock Vina function in Chimera, we are seeing in the output that the peptides are broken (splitting into two parts) at the protein's binding site. Our peptides are 8 amino acid long (one is 5 amino acid cyclic peptide by disulfide bond) and we prepared the peptides using the Build Structure function in Chimera and then dockprep & minimize structure.
