[Chimera-users] Sudden Chimera issues with OSX Mojave?

Dear Chimera users,

Has anyone else started seeing issues with the latest stable version of 
Chimera on OSX Mojave?  We have two new identical systems that were 
running perfectly as recently as 48 hours ago, but now Chimera is 
constantly crashing whenever we do something as trivial as File>Open or 
if we attempt to save a map.

To our knowledge there has been no update to Mojave, and we haven't 
changed our Chimera installation.

An example of the error log generated by Chimera when trying to, for 
example, save a map is:

while executing
     ("after" script)

File>Open windows do not scroll properly, and will instantly crash the 
entire program unless we change preferences to 'Open dialog starts in 
directory from last session = false'

Does anyone know of any recent (last ~36 hours...) changes to any 
supporting software?  We're wondering whether there has been some silent 
security update at Apple that has interefered with, for example, the 
windowing toolkit?

Many thanks,
