Hum, you're right, i should have thought about this before.
Since, the problem still stands :

If you move one molecule relatively to another one, the rmsd align does
not work any more (on any chain). As i'm using the alpha version to help
improving it, i thought this report could help tracking the bug.

By the way, thanks for the space group recommendation.
