Hi René,

  This is a bug.  I have not seen this in 5 or more years.  My best guess is that it is related to a graphics library on your computer called GLU that Chimera uses to triangulate the cap surfaces.  Not sure if you are Linux — in that case it would be part of Mesa, or on Windows it will be part of your graphics driver.  Can you try showing the same map with capping on another computer?

  If you use Chimera menu Help / Report a Bug… it will send us the information about your graphics driver and I may have a better idea.
