The Pbuffer code doesn't appear in chimera until after 1.3 in the 1.4 
alpha releases (the daily builds).  So it looks like you started up a 
chimera daily build with the --debug-opengl option, saved a configuration, 
and then tried the 1.3 release.  The solution is to start the daily build 
with the --debug-opengl option, then revert to Factory Defaults and Save, 
so the 1.3 version sees the default setup (same as removing your 
~/.chimera/gfxinfo.sav file).
