Subject: Swiss-PdbViewer Bug Report

Hi ! I've noticed a problem with the version 4.0 running on OSX 10.4 on a PPC with 1Gb of memory.
the program crashes when I perform the following operations:
- open file 1abc.pdb
- open file 1def.pdb
- Magic fit of 1def onto 1abc
- Bring the layer 1def to front
- Generate a structural alignement.

The program crashes during the last operation.
