The closest technical issue I could find was a mismatch between the X11/ICCCM window management mechanism and Chrome's desire to put tab controls in the window's title bar. While real, it's also an issue that effects every other toolkit on the platform.
That's not an issue. That's an advantage that Chrome can't break the consistency of the desktop. This should mean that Chrome will be better on Linux because it won't have the stupid tabs in the title bar (which would break my ability to have a choice in window managers, especially tiling ones that have no title bar at all) and hopefully it will prevent other non-standard stuff as well.
