Your Chimera is dying too early for it to be a normal bug. Since it is
right after the "initializing graphics" message, please try updating the
graphics driver to the latest from NVIDIA, and double check that your
are using a 24/32 bit framebuffer instead of a 16 bit one (if you don't
have a choice, then you're fine). If that doesn't fix it, then please
file a bug at http://www.cgl.ucsf.edu/cgi-bin/chimera_bug_report_2.py
and we'll go from there.
