Chrome crashes F13

I can reliably cause my F13 system to crash by browsing the web in 
Chrome (from the Google repository).

The scenario is (1) start chrome and (2) start normal browsing behavior. 
  Pretty soon, I get DNS timeouts and the system load applet shows the 
load average climbing. Today, I was able to kill chrome as load average 
passed 18.  Although the load average dropped, other applications were 
left in various states and I was unable to reboot the system cleanly.

Is anyone else seeing this sort of behavior from Chrome?

Current kernel is
I'm currently using google-chrome-beta-5.0.375.86-49890.i386.
