Unfortunately it's hard to see what to do with this report without
pinning it down more.

Some variables mentioned have been:

 * chromium
 * KDE
 * nvidia driver
 * flash plugin

If you can reproduce this booting from a live cd (e.g., a Debian Live
CD[1]), that could help.  If you can remember when this started
happening and confirm your guess by trying to reproduce this with and
without the upgraded package, that upgrade, that would also help.  If
you can rule out the nvidia driver and flash plugin as causes by
disabling them temporarily, that would be useful as well.

I'd suggest working with the kind folks at debian-user@ to come up with
a reproduction recipe for the relevant maintainers to try or to narrow
this down to a single package.

Thanks again and hope that helps,
