Google chrome starts to time out in an odd way: I'll open a new tab and try to load gmail. It's taking longer then it should, so I try to right click or open the console but nothing happens.
I am able to close the tab and try again - but the page loads and I am unable to do anything on the page.
This is what things start to look like when life sucks...

I've tried to kill the processes -9 and -15.
The processes end up as such: "(Google Chrome)" - which seems very odd to me. I'm used to seeing "Google Chrome He" or something like this:
/Applications/Google Chrome.app/Contents/Versions/17.0.963.46/Google Chrome Helper.app/Contents/MacOS/Google Chrome Helper --type=renderer --lang=en-US --force-fieldtest=ConnCountImpact/conn_count_6/ConnnectBackupJobs/ConnectBackupJobsEnabled/DnsImpact/default_enabled_prefetch/DnsParallelism/parallel_default/GlobalSdch/global_enable_sdch/IdleSktToImpact/idle_timeout_10/Instant/SilentExperimentA/Prefetch/ContentPrefetchPrerender1/PrerenderFromOmnibox/OmniboxPrerenderEnabled/PrerenderFromOmniboxHeuristic/ExactFullAlgorithm/ProxyConnectionImpact/proxy_connections_32/SpdyCwnd/cwndMin16/SpdyImpact/npn_with_spdy/WarmSocketImpact/warm_socket/ --extension-process --enable-print-preview --channel=313.0x33f8c00.1296777368
At this point I figure I should just restart or shutdown. But the system becomes unwilling to, stating that it can't shut down any of the current processes. I try to terminate Adium or the Terminal itself and those won't close as well.
This leads me to holding down the power button. 😳 When the system boots back up, everything works as it should, even the kill commands.
Does anyone have a guess as to what might be causing this?
Syslog: (220 was the parent Google Chrome process)

This problem is not exclusive to Google Chrome, it happens with iTunes and other applications as well.
"killing" the processes doesn't produce the desired results, but going to Apple Icon -> Force Quit does indeed completely stop the process as it should.
But the system still begins to degrade in stability, for instance, iTunes reports:
"The iTunes Library file is locked, on a locked disk, or you do not have write permission for this file."
When I tried to exit the Terminal that process became stuck as well (see report @ github).
Rebooting still remains the only viable option.😱 😰 😂 😭
