You can copy and paste the backtrace from the terminal or use

 gdb | tee backtrace.txt

to log debugging output to a file[1].  Then I would suggest attaching it
to http://crbug.com/48259 (or failing that, the Debian bug).

Are there any themes in the backtraces?  Is chromium stuck in a different
function when frozen than during normal operation?

Another ignorant question: are you using compiz?  From random searching it
seems you can temporarily disable compiz by running "kwin --replace"
if kwin is installed.  I ask because your symptoms seem vaguely
reminiscent of http://crbug.com/29561
