Could you please send me the complete console output from Coot under
these conditions:

a) when launching from Phenix 1.7
b) when launching from Phenix 1.6.4
c)when launching from the command line?

Very little has changed in the Coot-related parts of Phenix since
1.6.4, so I'm not sure how it's possible for one to work but not the
other.  In the past, errors like this were due to conflicts with the
shared libraries distributed with Phenix, but we largely reset the
environment when starting Coot to avoid the problem, and I'm pretty
sure we started that a year and a half ago.
