Hrm. I'm not sure where to start ... my simple suggestion is to try
disabling all of your modifications and then enabling them one by one,
testing for errors as you go. It's slow and tedious, but it should get
you there.

I wonder if GDB could be used to pinpoint the problem, somehow. If you 
tar or zip your chrome directory and post it somewhere, I'll try to find
time to tinker with it.

Hopefully someone will chime in with a better suggestion.
