Latest Chrome release breaks Gutenberg Layout when meta-boxes are in use

In the latest release of Google Chrome, the Gutenberg editor breaks. Meta boxes, if being used, cover up the entire editor except for half of the initial title block.

Chrome Version 77.0.3865.75

The offending issue appears to be in the wrapping div for the meta boxes, edit-post-layout__metaboxes.

If you disable the CSS class property flex-shrink in the css class .edit-post-layout__content .edit-post-layout__metaboxes the problem is fixed.

Hello @smokymountains, welcome to WordPress Trac!

Thanks for the report. This has already been reported in #48018 and upstream at so I'm going to close this ticket.
Based on the comments, installing the Gutenberg plugin might help for the moment.
