Thank you for your report!

However, processing it in order to get sufficient information for the
developers failed (it does not generate a useful symbolic stack trace). This
might be caused by some outdated packages which were installed on your system
at the time of the report:

no debug symbol package found for libunity-gtk2-parser0
no debug symbol package found for libasyncns0
no debug symbol package found for libxkbcommon-x11-0
no debug symbol package found for libnih1
no debug symbol package found for libpng12-0
no debug symbol package found for libselinux1
no debug symbol package found for unity-gtk2-module

no debug symbol package found for libnih-dbus1
no debug symbol package found for libxkbcommon0
no debug symbol package found for libexpat1
no debug symbol package found for qtdeclarative5-ubuntu-ui-toolkit-plugin

Please upgrade your system to the latest package versions. If you still
encounter the crash, please file a new report.

Thank you for your understanding, and sorry for the inconvenience!

This crash is specific to the software compositing path, which is largely untested. From the trace, it looks like |bitmap| is probably NULL. I'm not entirely sure what would cause that

void CompositorThreadProxy::SendSwapSoftwareFrameOnOwnerThread(
    uint32 surface_id,
    const gfx::Size& size,
    float scale,
    unsigned id,
    const gfx::Rect& damage_rect,
    const cc::SharedBitmapId& bitmap_id) {
  scoped_ptr<cc::SharedBitmap> bitmap(
        size, bitmap_id));

  scoped_refptr<CompositorFrameHandle> frame(
      new CompositorFrameHandle(surface_id, this, size, scale));
      new SoftwareFrameData(id, damage_rect, bitmap->pixels()));

  if (!owner().compositor) {
    DidSwapCompositorFrame(surface_id, frame);

  owner().compositor->SendSwapCompositorFrameToClient(surface_id, frame);

So, when a webview is hidden, the output surface backbuffers are discarded. But it seems that we also discard the current frontbuffer, which would lead to GetSharedBitmapFromId() failing
