Apologies, I should have mentioned that a reboot was necessary to reset the
memory leak (which was caused by the bad library in the Chromium PBI). So,
uninstall old PBI, install _1 PBI, and restart.

Hopefully someone who has a better grasp of the situation will prevent me
from confusing things further.
