I've had this crash a few more times; it seems to be more or less random but usually occurs while opening some program. The last two times happened while opening the game Tali, and then when opening Thunderbird. However it doesn't happen on every occasion so I don't know how to reproduce it.
It's likely that in most instances I've had chromium running, since I've been trying it out the last couple of weeks.

Is this still a problem with latest package there? we don't have any new report about it for a while. Please try to reproduce again and comment back, thanks in advance.

I haven't seen a crash in a long time, so I'll have to assume it's fixed!

After I updated the system, seems the problem is solved. So I did not open a new bug.
