A regression was introduced in the previous chromium security update. The browser would always crash when launched in headless mode. This update fixes this problem.

A file conflict with the buster chromium packages is also fixed.

For the stable distribution (stretch), this problem has been fixed in version 72.0.3626.96-1~deb9u2.

We recommend that you upgrade your chromium packages.
