If there is progressive slowdown, then there might be a memory leak that
we are unaware of. Please use chimera's Report a Bug dialog (in the Help
menu) and replace the blue text "(Describe the actions that caused this
problem to occur here)" with a description of what kind of data you're
looking at and which tools and commands you use to manipulate the data.
And please include your email address so we can ask for more information
when we can't reproduce the bug (and let you know when it is fixed).
Ideally, you'd attach a command script that replicates the bug, but some
information is better than none.
