Hi Oliver,

  On my 15" MacBook Pro 2019 running macOS 10.15.7 the Chimera daily build Oct 7, 2020 with new Tk works correctly.  Everything you tried in your video (command line, open dialog, quit) and the bug reporting worked correctly for me.

  Maybe worth moving your Chimera preferences file ~/.chimera/preferences and see if some preference you set is causing the issues.
