To save the time rebuilding: that was just a complicated way to say
"remove the line 'paths.push_back(FilePath("/usr/lib/nss"))' in

One can also achieve approximately the same effect by installing
hexedit and running

	hexedit /usr/lib/chromium/chromium
	<TAB>	(to move to the ASCII column)
	/ /usr/lib/nss	(to find that path mentioned there)
	X a few times	(to corrupt it)
	<control + X>	(to save and exit)
