Unfortunately, I don't know what triggers it. Feel free to try picking
some of the other Inox patches and see if it makes a difference:
Inox goes great lengths to "ungooglify" the browser. I've decided
against picking *all* their patches, for two reasons:
1) I'd like users to be able to use Chromium with their Google account
if they wish to (although I haven't actually tested this), and more
2) More patches means more porting work every new release. Usually
major versions bumps come with a plethora of security fixes, so I wish
to minimize maintenance overhead. Just figuring out the changed
dependencies, build flags, and GCC bugs with every release is a lot of

Indeed. Any help figuring out the offender is very welcome! No external
connectivity in the default configuration is a goal we should strive for.
