[Pkg-chromium-maint] Chromium 14 backport "Aw, Snap!"

For several months, I've been backporting chromium from Sid to Squeeze nearly every time a new version was available. I've seen here that Michael Gilbert has been doing the same thing[1] up to version 13. No problem until now.

However, I couldn't get the last Chromium 14 version to work properly (Michael did not backport this version). Whatever I tried, every tab crashes as soon as it open (new "blank" tabs included) with the "Aw, Snap!" message. The only workaround is to lunch it with the --no-sandbox option, but that's not very nice. 

I compiled it with and without the USE_SYSTEM_FFMPEG and USE_SYSTEM_V8 flags. Linked with gold and ld. I used the -dbg packages to try to find what was going wrong, but gdb wasn't really verbose when a tab was opened and crashed (doesn't care much about child process). 

Any ideas?
