[Chimera-users] Strange and inconsistent Chimera behavior recently on W7/Nvidia OS

I started to have strange and inconsistent behavior of chimera when I open PDB's. My system is W7 with Nvidia 840M graphics card (which has been functioning fine for nearly 3 years).  I am running the latest daily build but noticed this strange behavior with previous versions as well as the production one.

I attach 3 snip pictures, the first two are of pdb files opened, one OK (as usual) and the other distorted. The 3rd snip pictures is of the Nvidia debug when I start Chimera in command file as chimera.exe --debug-opengl.

It became quite a lottery for me as for how pdb file will open. The .py files open OK so far as I recall.

Please help me with this recent mystery.
