[Chimera-users] Measure contact between copies of the same map

This is a bug in the "measure contactArea" command. It should
account for the relative displacement between the maps but I see in the
code it is ignoring that. I'll fix it today and it will work in
tonight's Chimera daily build (compiled around 2 AM). Thanks for
pointing out the problem. I guess I always used it on maps that had not
been moved relative to one another.
