Chrome crashes on search for gmail file attachment
Running gmail in Google Chrome 220.127.116.11 on 64-bit Windows 7 Home Premium, when attaching a file to your email, you search for that file in the Windows file/open dialog, fail to find it, then widen the search by clicking on "Search Again in:" Computer, Chrome will crash 100% of the time. The entire browser goes down, not just the current tab. IE8 8.00.7600.16385 does not crash, nor does FireFox 3.5.5.
(1) Run Chrome 18.104.22.168 on Windows 7 Home Edition Premium 64-bit
(2) Compose email in gmail
(3) Click "Attach file" link
(4) Click "Choose file" button
(5) In Windows file/open dialog, type non-existent filename in upper right search box
(6) After file isn't found, under "Search again in:", click the "Computer" icon
(7) The search may (a) never comes back, or (b) find nothing
(8) In either case upon closing the dialog box, Chrome will crash.
Additional config details:
Aero features enabled, Windows search indexing enabled for most of C: and E: drives.

One more item: I rebuilt indexes and problem still happens. However a few times after letting the "Search again" phase run it didn't crash unless I let it run about 20 sec or more before closing the file/open dialog. But in general it crashes after letting the "Search again" phase run for 1-2 sec, then closing the file/open dialog.
Note the search itself hangs, never completing with "Searching..." displayed indefinitely.
