For posterity, the problem turned out to be that the user had the permissions on his Library/Frameworks folder set such the he himself couldn't access the folder.  Changing the permissions solved the problem.  We will see if there is anything Chimera can do to detect/sidestep the problem in the future.

Makes me think there is a file that needs thrown away from the other user that was generated by version 1.5. I deleted the .chimera folder, but that didn't help. Any ideas?

If you start Chimera from the command line with the --debug flag, what output do you get?  [to start from the command line; open Terminal.app (also in Utilities folder) and drag the Chimera icon into the terminal window; the path to the app will appear; append "/Contents/Resources/bin/chimera --debug" to the path and hit Return].
