Steam Overlay causes issues with FTL: Faster Than Light
When playing FTL, I get glitches whenever the steam overlay pops up. I haven't tested shift+tab. When "friend is now playing game" bubbles pop up in the corner, a previous store screen will randomly pop up and freeze the screen until the bubble goes back down. Sometimes, the overlay popping up will simply freeze the game.
OS: Linux Mint 14 Cinnamon 64-bit
Laptop Model: ASUS x401a
CPU: Intel Pentium B970
GPU Integrated Intel Graphics

Here's a detailed hardware report with device, PCI, memory, and user info removed.

Is that just some Information you like to share, or what is your question ? ;)

the overlay is inaccessable for me when using FTL, just diable it, or run in a window to avoid crashes until (or if) it is fixed

I was able to use the overlay in FTL without an issue. What happens for you? Do you get graphic corruption and are you running a video driver from Intel? It might be a driver issue.

The overlay wont even disable through steam settings. I'm using intel drivers, but they usually don't have issues.
