Package: chromium
Version: 37.0.2062.120-1~deb7u1
Severity: grave
Justification: renders package unusable

Dear Maintainer,

I'm running some full up to date installations of Wheezy, x86 and amd64. Since
an update of some nameservice switch related libraries (libnspr4-0d, libnss3-1d
and libnss3) Chromium is useless. It only shows "Aw, Snap!" even on it's own
config page. Starting Chromium with "--enable-logging --v=1" I see the
following errors:

[7:7:1108/130951:ERROR:nss_util.cc(211)] Error initializing NSS without a
persistent database: NSS error code: -8023
[7:7:1108/130951:FATAL:nss_util.cc(213)] nss_error=-8023, os_error=0

Chromium is installed from the repository and it's version is

Thanks in advance
