Prior to this change, chromium is stable for me. This modification makes
chromium to fall on various signals (seen 4, 6, 10 and 11). I guess the
update causes memory corruption under some circumstancies, making the
kernel to misbehave (which can possibly lead to a filesystem not being
unmounted properly).
