Google Chrome crashes on Fedora 15 when accessing a google document or calendar

I just had this: when opening a document in Google Docs or going to my calendar, Chrome would display the "Woops ..." page.

In /var/log/messages, a few lines point to SELinux:

I disabled SELinux and rebooted, no more crashes, proving its something with SELinux.
