I am also seeing this, with Google Chrome Beta 14.0.835.159-r100066,
and the most recent kernel update, 2.6.32-35squeeze1, on 32-bit.
I am running some fairly flash-heavy stuff, and weirdly in one
instance, the browser reported that a page had become unresponsive
when the flash content on that page was still fine -- then the
browser exited, and I saw the kernel messages.
My kern.log entries are similar to those below, they begin with
"unable to handle kernel paging request at fffffff3" (I am on a 32-bit
Anecdotally, it seems that it doesn't happen if the browser is
the only thing running on the desktop, but I don't have a lot of data
on that, I only did the kernel update a few hours ago.
