haaa! finally... after waiting for well over a week, at last! the
bug *did* in fact reoccur.
just to make sure we're on the right page this is from the chrome://version
Chromium 56.0.2924.76 (Developer Build) built on Debian 9.0, running
on Debian 7.4 (64-bit)
now, here's the circumstances:
* i was using facebook "chat" web variant (don't tell no-one in the
software libre world that, ok? :)
* CPU usage climbed *really* high - 3 processes each hit around 20%
and the CPU speed had to jump to around 2ghz to cope (fans came up)
* after flipping to a separate screen (i use fvwm) and returning....
so whatever has been added that "fixes" the problem does NOT actually
fix the *ACTUAL* underlying race-condition / problem... it just avoids
*most* circumstances where it occurs... but not all.
