We investigate the properties of time-dependent dissipative solitons for a cubic complex Ginzburg-Landau equation stabilized by nonlinear gradient terms. The separation of initially nearby trajectories in the asymptotic limit is predominantly used to distinguish qualitatively between time-periodic behavior and chaotic localized states. These results are further corroborated by Fourier transforms and time series. Quasiperiodic behavior is obtained as well, but typically over a fairly narrow range of parameter values. For illustration, two examples of nonlinear gradient terms are examined: the Raman term and combinations of the Raman term with dispersion of the nonlinear gain. For small quintic perturbations, it turns out that the chaotic localized states are showing a transition to periodic states, stationary states, or collapse already for a small magnitude of the quintic perturbations. This result indicates that the basin of attraction for chaotic localized states is rather shallow.
