Package: chromium
Version: 46.0.2490.71-1~deb8u1
Followup-For: Bug #793761


I have similar symptoms, they may be related, or they may be something

I delayed restarting chromium a bit after 46.0.2490.71-1~deb8u1 was
released, and only did so today.

The system is Jessie-based, running in a VirtualBox instance.  All
software is as up-to-date as "apt update && apt upgrade" lets it be.

The bug first appeared when I was running under VirtualBox 5.0.6.

Upon restart, the windows are not displayed.  They are available with
alt+tab and a preview is visible in the virtual workspace switcher.

After a while, I get the "Pages Unresponsive" pop-up, but it displays
absolutely nothing of use.  I can only assume that there are OK and
Cancel buttons there somewhere, and as you can see, there is something
funky going on with redraws:


I though that this might have been due to me having 100+ tabs
distributed over 6 windows, so I tried starting via the command line

This creates this lovely error message:

libGL error: pci id for fd 15: 80ee:beef, driver (null)

glxinfo hangs.

I have also updated my host OS to El Capitan and VirtualBox to 5.0.8,
but no luck so far.  :(

Interestingly, iceweasel also crashes now:

(process:16953): GLib-CRITICAL **: g_slice_set_config: assertion 'sys_page_size == 0' failed

I don't know whether that was an issue before updating to VirtualBox
5.0.8 or not, sorry.

I think that is just about what I can contribute, and I hope I'm not
pursuing a red herring here.
