[Chimera-users] Auto start and nogui option causing segmentation fault?

Hello,

I don't know if maybe i'm doing something wrong, or if there's a problem,
but I'm on a mac el capitan 10.11.6 and I'm getting these weird errors when
I try to start chimera in nogui mode.

I usually set various tools to auto-start once I start chimera, but
recently I was messing around and added a few, and now I'm getting these
errors when i start chimera via --nogui.  Problem is, I don't know which
one is causing the seg fault, but I feel like it shouldn't be calling these
gui options with the nogui options on anyway.  Once I started getting these
errors I went to Favorites->add to favorites/toolbar->reset & save, and now
I don't get the segfault. I do get a few other errors if I adda few back to
the auto start / on toolbar options.

chimera production version 1.11 (build 41179) 2016-07-15 05:43:21 UTC

with many auto-start options on

should I be adding a different flag or something when I start chimera via
nogui?

Thanks,
Dan
