[Pkg-chromium-maint] Bug#857767: found workaround

in case anybody else is frustrated about this, I've found a
workaround (as root):

mkdir -p /etc/skel/.config/chromium/Default
touch "/etc/skel/.config/chromium/First Run"
echo "{}" > /etc/skel/.config/chromium/Default/Preferences

The lines responsible for this mess in the code seem to be (although I
did not verify since I found a suitable workaround):

$ sed -n '986,987p' chrome/browser/profiles/profile_manager.cc
  if (profile->IsNewProfile() || first_run::IsChromeFirstRun())
    profile->GetPrefs()->SetBoolean(prefs::kHasSeenWelcomePage, false);
