I had this same problem, not knowing beforehand that it was the extension. If I attempted to remove uBO and/or a different extension, Chromium would still crash as long as uBO was installed. Once uBO was removed, I've had no crashes. 

I replaced uBO with Ad Block Plus (ABP) and Chromium has been fine.

Tried to remove this specific extension, but this browser is severely botched. Still crashes on multiple events: trying to cast, installing, uninstalling or configuring extensions or themes, arbitrarily on YT videos, bringing up selection windows on some web apps and sometimes even browsing my text-only local Nginx. Some of these are hard to replicate as they seem too random, but it always spits out something about libpthreads and SEGV of different types, mostly MAPERR.

I don't know if this is related to the issue at hand, but since last night, I've been seeing this every time I launch Chromium.

Running 'ps -e' in a terminal isn't showing Chromium using any other processes.
