google-chrome-unstable more stable than google-chrome-stable?

Generally when a stable version of a software is released , it is assumed that the product will be stable and will have less crashes. My Google Chrome stable v5 on Ubuntu 10.04 seemed to behave otherwise. Eversince I installed the stable package, the flash plugin kept crashing without any warning. It would crash on any website running flash. Also, sometimes, pages would get stuck and take ages to load, forcing me to kill the browser.
Fed up with the crashes, I went back to my google-chrome-unstable build from the development branch and viola! No crashes! I am a happy user of Google Chrome (unstable) now.
I am surprised to see this. Did Google declare the wrong build as stable? Or is it my system? Did any of the Google Chrome users have this problem? Would love to know.
