Package: chromium
Version: 53.0.2785.113-1~deb8u1
Severity: important

Dear Maintainer,
*** Please consider answering these questions, where appropriate ***

   * What led up to the situation?

Started chromium.

   * What exactly did you do (or not do) that was effective (or

Upgraded from chromium 52 -> chromium 53.  Downgrading to chromium 52 makes it work again.

Tried "chromium -g" and it appeared to crash when calling some function in ld-linux-x86-64 .  (Note that, due to limited resources on the machine in question, I cannot download and use chromium-dbg.)

   * What was the outcome of this action?

About 10-15 seconds later, chromium gets a segmentation fault.

   * What outcome did you expect instead?

It to continue to work.
