I am having the following problem with the latest production version of 
Chimera (1.3) on a linux computer.

Chimera crash and exit after doing some actions like rotating a molecule 
several times  or simply trying to open the side-view window.  After  
the program ends there is a Floating exception message in the console. 
The problem occur   with the latest production release (1.3) and daily 
build versions but not with an older  production  version of chimera 
(1). I installed the latest nvidia driver but this didn't solve the 

I am running the old linux  2.4 kernel (Suse 9.0)  and I am not sure if 
this has anything to do with the problem . I am hesitant to upgrade the 
OS and break all the other programs that  now work in this machine  (you 
got to love linux :-))
