Chrome fullscreen crashes Unity

Bug Description

The bug fix for unredirecting Chrome fullscreen mode in is now out of date, as the Google Chrome's window class has changed at some point from "google-chrome" to "Google-chrome".

As a result, the fix in that bug no longer works in Xenial. I'm seeing regular Unity hangs when un-fullscreening, as reported in

I'm constantly having to log into a tty and reset the window system to recover from this.

It should be simple enough to change "google-chrome" to "Google-chrome" in compiz composite settings to fix this.
