Bug Description

With the update of Chromium (33.0.1750.152-0ubuntu1~pkg995.1 -> 34.0.1847.116-0ubuntu2) in trusty today, Chromium has stopped honouring my Gtk+ font size settings in the tab bar, location bar, bookmark bar, and menus (context menu).

Additionally, the folder icons in the bookmark bar have also switched to some odd generic yellow icons.

It seems like Chromium is having issues rendering things in the Ubuntu font at size 8. The font rendering inside and outside of Chromium looks sane on both size 7 and 9, but not at 8.

Ah, heck, I just realized all these inconsistencies come from Aura suddenly
being enabled:

chromium-browser (34.0.1847.116-0ubuntu1) UNRELEASED; urgency=low
  [...]
  * debian/rules: Enable high-DPI. Enable touch support. These require
    using Aura toolkit.

For those who can't stand the ugliness, here's a build of chromium-browser without Aura for the time being: https://launchpad.net/~hyperair/+archive/staging/+sourcepub/4089039/+listing-archive-extra

You'll lose high-DPI and touch support, but not everyone needs those.
