This might be related to http:/bugs.debian.org/793748.

> Starting program: /usr/lib/chromium/chromium --type=gpu-process --channel=5756.0.174845534 --no-sandbox --v8-natives-passed-by-fd --v8-snapshot-passed-by-fd --disable-breakpad --supports-dual-gpus=false --gpu-driver-bug-workarounds=2,15,45,57 --gpu-vendor-id=0x8086 --gpu-device-id=0x0046 --gpu-driver-vendor --gpu-driver-version --v8-natives-passed-by-fd --v8-snapshot-passed-by-fd

You might want to try to figure out how to launch the gpu process with
some of those flags removed or altered, like the workaround one.

Best wishes,
