Package: chromium
Version: 31.0.1650.63-1
Severity: important

Dear Maintainer,
When opening web pages with some strange characters (emoji, i would say) with
utf-8 encoding, chromium displays the 'Aw, Snap!' error web page.
This thing does not happen in e.g. Epiphany browser.

Following is a crash-producing html code:
<html><head><meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8"/>

I tried debugging as explained on https://wiki.debian.org/Chromium/Debugging
but I'm not sure it works as the process doesn't hang completely.

When opening in a terminal the following output is generated:
ATTENTION: default value of option force_s3tc_enable overridden by environment.
[19:19:0115/222625:FATAL:memory_linux.cc(25)] Out of memory, size = 139741196590576

(The second line appears when displaying the page).

It's really annoying as in social sites people started using this characters
so often.

Thanks in advance,
