Thanks for compiling & testing the current open-source code! I think this
is a driver issue. Some card/driver combinations object to being fed
geometry too fast in immediate mode. Please See if one or both of the
following settings helps:

Subject: [PyMOL] exploding proteins
I just checked out PyMOL 1.1r0 revision 3367 via subversion. When I open
any old pdb file (eg. fetch 1ubq), the protein is displayed as if irradiated
with a free-electron laser
or any other representation is fine, except ribbon, which displays nothing.
Is that a bug in PyMOL or in my graphics driver? I'm running Fedora 7 with
the current ATI driver obtained from the livna repository. The graphics
card is a dusty FireGL T2.
unfortunately, none of your suggestions fixes the problem (which isn't
really one anyway as I never use the lines representation). If I set both
ati_bugs and nvidia_bugs, the display is completely messed up.
I'll update to Fedora 9 once the new ATI driver is compatible.
