Bug Description

I've just upgraded from Chromium 44 to new Chromium 45 (Version 45.0.2454.85 Ubuntu 14.04 (64-bit)) and it has GUI problems.

I use LTS with Vivid kernel linux-image-generic-lts-vivid, KDE.

I've attached an example screenshot. When you switch tabs - you receive these rectangles. They can be black or from another tab.

Running chromium with "--disable-gpu" has solved the problem.
