How about stack traces from a first message? Are they useless?

If you want full backtrace from gdb then describe how to get if, because usual
approach (gdb <program> --> run --> segfault --> bt full) will not work with
chromium as far as I understand.

Or you may easily install 32-bit chromium in your 64-bit system and reproduce
segfaults by yourself.

I have built chromium/51.0.2704.79-1.1 without this patch and all works fine.
So the root of problem is exactly here.

But please do not ask to test any patches, because in my system this package
was building during 8.5 hours and all this time my laptop was too hot and I was
worrying it will be overheated.

Best wishes,
