Hi Andy,

   I don't know how Chimera could get in a state where it will not 
accept any typed input.  Do you recall the last thing you did in Chimera 
before it stopped accepting key input?

   If I were stuck in this situation and could not type a file name to 
save the Chimera session I would create an empty file with the session 
file name I wanted using a text editor.  Then choose that file with the 
mouse in the Chimera session saving dialog.  Desperate measures.

   If you can reproduce the problem please tell me how and I will fix
