Package: chromium
Version: 43.0.2357.124-2
Severity: important

Dear Maintainer,

/etc/chromium.d/default-flags contains an incorrect statement:
export CHROMIUM_FLAGS+=--show-component-extension-options

Since /usr/bin/chromium is run with sh, I got such error:
/usr/bin/chromium: 4: export: CHROMIUM_FLAGS+: bad variable name

Two patches can solve this issue:

Either using bash as a shell instead of sh:

Thanks for maintening!
