Default Chromium in 6.5

Hi All -- After 6.5, Chromium does not run the second time (after installation) on my machine. I have to delete the directory under .config and .cache.
I came across this report which seems to be exactly my situation ...but did not see any fix...
Is this the current state - or is there a workaround ?
Or have i missed some permissions when installing Chromium ?

Chromium on OpenBSD began using the unveil(2) security enhancement with release 6.5. It limits the application's ability to access non-standard storage locations. As an example, you might be using a non-standard location for your ~/Downloads directory.

To determine if this is your root cause, run chromium with the --disable-unveil option, and note if there are any changes in behavior.

I'm running www/iridium (privacy enhanced chrome fork) on a new 6.5 install without issues. I did save my prior ~/.config/iridium and reused it on the new install.

This would suggest several things you could try.

1) See if you get the same behavior with Iridium.
2) Copy your ~/.config/chromium over from another Linux/BSD system - perhaps unveil is preventing the writing of a needed run option to your home directory.
3) If Iridium works, rename the ~/.config directory to chromium.
