Well, those are very good guesses, thank you.
I did notice that chrome and enlightnement 0.19 and above don't mix.
(with 0.18 it works ok).
I am however using chrome 48.0.2564.48-1, and I didn't think about reverting

With the agreement that chrome should not be able to cause the intel driver
to hang or crash, I'll downgrade back to 47 to see if that helps.

However, it'd be great if someone from intel could look at these problems
and hopefully fix them, since they are likely bugs in the driver that ought
to be fixed.

Thanks for the suggestions, I very much appreciate it.
