[Chimera-users] questions about modeller and task panel

I am trying to use Chimera as an interface to a local installation of Modeller on my Mac.

I have two questions:
1) When I open the task panel, I can see the current tasks and the completed tasks (nice visual cuing), but I do not see any way to kill a job.  How can I select a job and how can I stop it?

2) When I run the tutorial example for Modeller, I get the following message, which seems like it is telling me that something is wrong (although the job appears to still be running in the task panel).  I have re-installed the Modeller package, but I don't know what 'environment variable' was not set ... It seems like the program doesn't know where to put the output, although I specified a path for the temporary output.  Can you help with this?
