This trick works for me too. By the way, I just found out that the reported bug
also affects octave-gui (4.0.3-2+b2), which randomly freezes just like
chromium. And the exact same trick you described also works with octave.

I can always reproduce the bug in octave as follows:

 1. Within octave-gui, open a new window; for example plotting something such
    as: plot(-10:1:10)

 2. Switch back to octave's main window and then return to the plot window;
usually it freezes at this point, if not, just repeat the window switching,
alternating between octave's and plot's windows.
