Default [Q] Anything Google Maps related freezes the phone

Hello, I updated a couple of apps today, including upgrading to Google Maps 8.0. Since then my phone occasionally just reboots. I've noticed that if I try to uninstall Google Maps, the phone freezes. Try to use it, the phone freezes. Fix permissions, it freezes when it reaches Google Maps. Tried to flash an older gapps version, didn't help. And on and on and on...

Any idea what the hell is going on? How on earth can I get rid of Google Maps?

I'm running a CM monthly from end of last year...

Which CM ROM are you running exactly? With the new theme engine in early April nightlies and recently in the M6 build, it has cause severe memory leak resulting in reboots, crashes, and systemui not working in phones with low RAM such as the Galaxy Nexus.
