Attempting to terminate google chrome by clicking the "X" window decoration
closes sometimes leaves some of chrome's back end in existence.  When this
happens, further attempts to start chrome fail and parts of the system lock up
in strange ways.  Entering "$ chrome" into a shell locks up the shell; "^C" and
"^Z" have no effect;  the process(es) can't be killed by using "kill -9
<whatever>"; if the user logs out, no login is possible and the system has to be

Terminating chrome by using the build in exit command: [Customize and control
Google Chrome]->Exit  work OK.

Has anyone else seen this?  What's going on?

Thanks - jon
