When chrome has crashed, it displays a warning (under the address bar) on restart, offering to restore tabs. I'm launching chrome in kiosk mode, i don't want theses warnings to be displayed.

Is there a way to do this ?

You should run Chrome in Incognito Mode with this command:

chrome --incognito --kiosk

Here they talk about running this command before starting Chrome to stop the Restore Bar from appearing:

sed -i 's/"exited_cleanly": false/"exited_cleanly": true/' \

incognito does the trick for me. –  Olivier Jan 27 '11 at 15:40

I believe --restore-last-session will also do the job.
