Chrome Remote Desktop host crashing on Ubuntu 16.04

Upgraded to 16.04 from 14.04 and Chrome Remote Desktop (host) no longer works.

Chrome: 52.0.2743.116 (64-bit)

The log file /tmp/chrome_remote_desktop_xxxx contains the following:

What should I try to look at?

Thanks.

FWIW. Installed a different desktop environment, which doesn't use gnome-keyring, and it is now working.

  sudo apt-get install lxde lxde-common lubuntu-core lubuntu-icon-theme lubuntu-restricted-extras

Change ~/.chrome-remote-desktop-session to:

  exec /usr/bin/startlxde

To enable resizable desktop, create the script, /opt/google/chrome-remote-desktop/Xvfb-randr

  #!/bin/bash
  exec /usr/bin/Xvfb +extension RANDR $*

Restart CRD

  sudo /etc/init.d/chrome-remote-desktop restart

(compilation of advise from the internet)
