With due respect, it's always been the job of the Debian maintainer of a
package to forward bugs upstream.  Oftentimes, a bug is due to a
Debian-specific patch or dependency, in which case sending the bug
report upstream is ineffective and just serves to irritate upstream.
The Debian BTS is *the* right place to report bugs that are in Debian.

For example, this behavior appears to be an interaction with NSS[0][1].
It was my understanding that Chromium 47 was supposed to use BoringSSL
on Linux, but apparently Chromium in Debian is still linked against NSS,
which may be related.
