a) did you install via a package?
b) If so, why?

Chromium gets new builds once every 20 minutes or so... so if you're
running Chromium, then you need to make sure you've gotten the latest
and greatest. 

see http://build.chromium.org/ for the buildbot waterfall and all sorts
of goodies. If someone's locked the tree to hack on something, it might
take a little longer, so beware. 

Check that you've first just got a bad build (it happens) and go from
there. if the problem persists, try with another browser like
Kazehakase or Midori to see if its a WebKit related issue. If that
does help, start filing bugs in google's tracker for Chromium. 

Remember, using Chromium is just another phrase for "Being a google
guinea pig"
