    Change your os.system("chimera ...") to os.system("env
    PYTHONVERBOSE=1 chimera ...") and the debugging output might give
    you a clue.  Feel free to send me the voluminous output (and just

              works just fine.  So it's probably something about your
              particular setup that is tickling this bug.<br>
              <br>
              It might be the directory that you're running the script
              in, it might have python modules/packages that conflict
              with chimera's.  Or it might something in the
              environment.  Chimera tries to protect its python from the
              user's environment, but maybe we missed something.  Also
              double check that the chimera you're invoking is the one
              you're expecting -- try using an absolute path to chimera
              while you're debugging this.<br>
