I have a Windows 8 pro machine, 64-bit 8 GB RAM Core i3 and Quadro FX 570.

When I start Chimera (x86 and x86-64), I see the splash screen then it says
"pythonw.exe has stopped working".  When I add --debug:

Cannot execute 'gzip': no automatic decompression of .Z files

initializing general preferences
loading Tix
initializing graphics

I managed to cause windows to try to send an error report, which captured
these files:

if those are useful for debugging, I can provide them.
