Are you using cyrillic characters for your file names?
If yes try changing that and see what happens.

Hi,
I'm installed Pymol version 1.2 from repository on Mandriva Linux  and
I'm constantly getting following errors when trying to open/save files

after this error Pymol stop responding

I tried to reinstall Python, Tk and Pymol but it does not help.
Does somebody know how to fix it? I'd be very grateful for help.

thanks in advance
