That's really not a satisfactory solution. I don't restart my browser
weekly unless I'm forced to, it doesn't matter if this happens one day or
seven days after the new snap has become available on the channel.

Why is the chromium snap using per-version state directories? I think
fixing that would be much more important in terms of usability.
