Same problem here with chromium in Debian sid (5.0.375.86~r498).

Before chromium was in sid I was building packages from the ubuntu source debs. These versions of chromium did not have this problem. I've been meaning to have a look at what patches are applied in the ubuntu package: it seems one of them fixes this problem.

Cheers,

Evo2.

It seems to happen with all (?) webkit-based browsers in debian sid and testing.

Sid: Cromium, Midori
Testing: Midori, Epiphany

Are you using a package manager or building from the official sources?

I used to follow http://code.google.com/p/chromium/wi...ldInstructions
... and that did work indeed.

PS: @schneidz, are you using a debian based distro?

I installed it using:

Code:
pacman -S chromium
It's probably equivalent to:

Code:
apt-get install chromium

Thx.

Looking at all debian bugs, I can't find a simular one though ...
