Bug#599812: Chrome rendering of HTML5 elements such as canvas and video crash X with xserver-xorg-video-intel

So I've now got version 2:2.12.0+shadow-2 of xserver-xorg-video-intel
installed. HTML5 still crashes X but it comes right back up again.
This is can be reproduced. Using Chrome with the following info from

Google Chrome	8.0.552.5 (Official Build 62886) dev
WebKit	534.10
User Agent	Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US) AppleWebKit/534.10
(KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/8.0.552.5 Safari/534.10
Command Line	 /opt/google/chrome/google-chrome --flag-switches-begin
--disable-outdated-plugins --enable-tabbed-options --flag-switches-end

This still happens and the bug still exists in the new version.
