[Chimera-users] xfowarding not working in new chimera

My older version of chimera x forwards with no problem;
from the about ucsf chimera window
its beta version 1 build 2064   2004/12/15 for linux2

We have upgraded the 32 and 64 bit version which run fine locally.
but when we run from another computer with ssh either
-X, -Y, -XY , -o ForwardX11=yes frankel at graphics1
we always get a crashe after trying to do something (e.g fetch a pdb) with
the same genral error message

frankel at graphics1:/home/frankel 102%
X Error of failed request:  BadRequest (invalid request code or no such
  Major opcode of failed request:  144 (GLX)
  Minor opcode of failed request:  181 ()
  Serial number of failed request:  5374
  Current serial number in output stream:  5379

(serial numbers may differ between runs)
Can this be fixed? (We suspect it's a mesa library problem).

Also when running nx client, even the old version of chimera from crashes.
I'll have to get the error message later, but does anyone have experience
running over nx client?

we've gotten pymol, and vmd to work.
