Endless Google Chrome errors related to OpenGL on Ubuntu 20.04

Running the 20.20-1098277 amdgpu-pro drivers on a fresh Ubuntu 20.04 install with Chrome open my syslog has filled up to 8GB, primarily with the following error, often at a rate of dozens per second:

google-chrome.desktop[1887]: [2040:2040:0907/224345.755902:ERROR:gl_surface_egl.cc(741)] EGL Driver message (Error) eglGetMscRateANGLE: glXGetMscRateOML failed.

Here's what chrome://gpu/ says: Result

 

glxinfo | grep OpenGL does, I think, show OpenGL is using the amdpro-gpu driver: Result

 

I tried the Chrome Beta and Unstable channels and had the same problem.

 

Is there any way this can be fixed in the drivers, or should I take it to Chromium?

 

For now I have added --use-gl=desktop to every Exec line in /usr/share/applications/google-chrome.desktop and it seems to have stopped the errors, and performance seems reasonable with large HD videos, but I wonder if it could be better with GL support working properly. I also wonder if everyone else's logs are filling up.

 

Thanks
