Black flyout menus in Google Chrome 44.0.2403.125

See attached.
inxi stuff:
System:    Host: my-kungfu Kernel: 3.13.0-37-generic x86_64 (64 bit) Desktop: Xfce 4.11.8
           Distro: Linux Mint 17.1 Rebecca
Graphics:  Card: NVIDIA GK106 [GeForce GTX 660]
           Display Server: X.Org 1.15.1 drivers: nouveau (unloaded: fbdev,vesa)
           Resolution: 1920x1080@60.0hz, 1920x1080@60.0hz
           GLX Renderer: Gallium 0.4 on NVE6 GLX Version: 3.0 Mesa 10.1.3
nvidia settings:
nvidia-settings -v

nvidia-settings:  version 331.20  (buildd@roseapple)  Mon Feb  3 15:07:22 UTC 2014
  The NVIDIA X Server Settings tool.

  This program is used to configure the NVIDIA Linux graphics driver.
  For more detail, please see the nvidia-settings(1) man page.

Try to 'guess' and 'use' one of the flyout menus (I hovered over where I expected something to work anyway)
caused X to dump me out to a console that showed a hand-shaped pointer/cursor and system required hard reboot.
This happened 4 times out of 4 that I tried. Done with that.

Any ideas?

can you disable hardware accel in chrome's preferences?

also, there seems to be some mismatch with gpu:
is your card really the GeForce GTX 660? because that's a fairly new card, and your nvidia driver seems outdated?
and, is X using nouveau or nvidia?
