3.x/libc6 -- out of ideas -- launching chrome results in an immediate crash of Xvnc everytime [SOLVED, well root cause found anyway]

It came down to this Google Chrome extension:

Name: Extensions Manager (aka switcher)

When this extension is enabled in 64-bit Linux when I launch Google Chrome
on two separate machines (both 64-bit/Debian), it crashes Xvnc, when I
disable/remove this extension, Xvnc no longer crashes (at least it has not
yet :-))

All of this hassle due to 1 bad plug-in; in any event though there is a bug
in X/VNC, an application should not crash VNC.

Just a heads up to anyone else who sees this problem.
