I hadn't noticed this before, but those instructions do say that
--renderer-cmd-prefix bypasses the sandbox, so that's why the crash is
gone in the debugger.

I followed the "connecting to a running renderer" process (and using
--allow-sandbox-debugging), I've found that I can start debugging
successfully. Yay :)

Anyway, I need to spend some time on this, but probably won't get to it
until next weekend or later.

If you do any work in the meantime, let me know what you find.

Best wishes,
