Chimera morphing is limited to fairly similar models. The first thing
it tries to do is identify the equivalent atoms from both models. When
there are unequal number of chains in the models, it is not smart enough
to figure out which is the extra chain. A workaround might be to create
a copy of 3VBS, delete the chain from 3BVS, and morph between the copy
and 3VBU. The shortened copy of 3VBS must be an open model, but it does
not need to be displayed.
