google-chrome-beta --disable-gpu did not help.

4.3.3 and xserver-xorg-video-intel 2:2.99.917+git20151217-1~exp1 gave a
full deadlock

Downgrading to 3.19.8 also gave the full deadlock.

I've now just downgraded xserver-xorg-video-intel to 2:2.99.917-1 and
will see how that goes.

But I have to ask again:
Who is using that Intel(R) HD Graphics 4600 on a 3K screen laptop?
Or am I the only such user on this list?
