So finally the solution was easy access...

Thanks to someone who suggest me to do that, I created a new user, to verify if coot was ok under that session, and it was fine.
Then I went back on my session, I removed the files below:
0-coot.state.py <http://0-coot.state.py>

I restarted Coot, and loaded my files (.pdb, .mtz and .cif), Coot didn't crash and I am now able to do a real space refinement.

It should be my first intention to remove Coot preferences.

    You give me an opportunity to comment, I had previously missed the boat
    while traveling.

    Sounds like a fine plan.

    The first thing to do, when Coot crashes is to check for a new revision.
    There's a good chance that the problem has been fixed and is just
    waiting for you to download it.

    For the record, the crash log would be highly helpful.

    Fine as it was in its day, PRODRG is no longer what we use for ligands.
    We use Acedrg.  If you want to use SMILES, you can use it on the command
    line (that's what I do). If you want to use it from a sketch, use the
    Ligand Builder in Coot. You can also use pyrogen (I do).

    Edit -> Preferences -> File Selector -> Modern File Chooser

    For the record (again) this is the site that I use to download Coot mac

    It was discussed on the mailing list in January and fixed by the next day.




In case it was not clear how Michel's answer was related to mine, the reason coot was fine when starting from fresh is that the default option for the file selectors/choosers is "Modern" and Michel had changed those to "Classic" - those options get stored in $HOME/.coot-preferences. You can additionally modify them in your 0-coot.state.py and 0-coot.state.scm files (in the current directory).
