[Chimera-users] Slow opening of files

I find it mystifying that a 98-atom compound could take that long to  
open.  Does it have a lot of fused ring systems in it?  The next time  
it happens could you try this experiment:  close the molecule, set the  
"New Molecules" smart-display preference to "false", and open it  
again.  Any faster, or the same?
