Bug Description

I've been using the refresh awareness feature: https://forum.snapcraft.io/t/wip-refresh-app-awareness/10736

That prevents chromium snap from updating while in use, which prevents a bug where opening a new tab stops working and gives SIGTRAP. (Very suboptimal, since now programs need to be closed and snap refresh manually called to get it to update, but I digress.)

However, today I got an update to the "core" snap and new tabs stopped working again.
