Can't Mouse over the "X", Min and Max in the Upper Left corner when Steam is running
I'm having this very slightly annoying problem when Steam is running in the background - e.g. the Steam icon appears in the upper right system tray, but no apps are running.

It doesn't matter what application I'm using, but when I attempt to mouse over any of the window control buttons in the upper left corner of the screen...the 3 control buttons (X=close, minimize and maximize) disappear only to be replaced by the Ubuntu version information.

The workaround to be able to close a window is to right click on the corresponding program item in the left-side app tray and select Quit (or whatever), but it's just a little bit annoying to have to do that.

Anyone else having this problem?

I'm on Ubuntu 12.10 x64, by the way...

I have this too, I am running Ubuntu 13.04 x64 and I too can't click the window control buttons.

Wow can't believe this problem about tricking window controls only happens when steam is running.
Atleast i now know what program causes that.
They really should fix this, i allways get fooled by that thing when i want to minimize a maximized window.

The window-control-icons are shown but disappear as soon as i go over the icons.
Sadly this happens to any program and not only steam related games.
