Usually odd crashes are caused by a faulty graphics driver. So if you
have an AMD/ATI or NVIDIA graphics card, you should install the
proprietary drivers, they are more robust than the open-source ones and
faster too. If you have Intel graphics, then you might be out of luck
depending on which model you have, but in general, you want the newest
version of the driver you can get which means the more recent desktop
Linux you can get -- the Intel driver is under very active development
If you use chimera's Help / Report a Bug dialog to report this as a bug,
that will tell me about the hardware in your system and which version of
Ubuntu you have and then I'll be able to help you better.
