When libgl1-mesa-swx11 is used, chromium should be started with

$ chromium --disable-gpu

libgl1-mesa-swx11 should NOT be marked as conflict because it broke
usage of chromium under X2Go/FreeNX.

X2Go/FreeNX users are required to use libgl1-mesa-swx11 due to lack of
3D support and so can't use libgl1-mesa-glx.

Please remove libgl1-mesa-swx11 in conflict list of chromium package.

Many thanks
