[Pkg-chromium-maint] Bug#669338: chromium: Service Eats System

Package: chromium
Version: 18.0.1025.151~r130497-1
Severity: important

There is a chromium --type=service in my kde startup.

This apparently very quickly eats 100% CPU (and possiby filling to 100% memory)
grinding everything to a halt. I try to keep chromium niced, this one was at 0.
Nicing it may help but will not effect memory usage if this be part of the
problem. Trying this. Or simply disable it.

However, this happens on first (few?)  explicit chromium browsing runs and then
ceases to be a problem.

This should not be happening.
