This error is usually a graphics driver bug. And is semi-common on
systems with Intel motherboard graphics. The new chimera 1.3 release
works around some of the cases where the bug occurs. So please try
chimera 1.3. The other thing to try is to update your graphics/video
driver. If you have a laptop, chances are that your vendor has not
released a new graphics/video driver in a long time, so you will have to
go to <http://downloadcenter.intel.com/> for a newer driver.
If you continue to have problems, please file a bug report using the Help
/ Report a Bug dialog.
