What kind of machine are you running on? I cannot reproduce the behavior you describe.

The side effect is that the window remains stuck at the foreground, so that tools opened from the menus will later only appear as buttons in the Active Dialogs list in the "lightning window", and I cannot find a way to bring them to the foreground any more, except after restarting Chimera. Any undo commands for CGLtk.raiseWindow(tkgui.app)?

As the scripts proceed, the multialignment viewer windows remain at the front, and I haven't been able to figure out how to bring the main molecular graphics window back to the front (except by clicking). I am aware that the problem would go away if I made the whole thing into a movie, but I would like to run the script in our research group meeting and leave the displayed models available for manual rotations. Are there commands to bring windows behind or in front of other Chimera windows?
