Steam notifications stealing/breaking text focus.
Since I'm not (yet) in the beta, but have been playing a bit where I can (thanks Reddit), I've been trying out just the chat... and can confirm this issue report over in the beta access side:

In short, if you're typing and Steam notifies you of an event, it steals the focus so that your window manager thinks it's typing in Steam instead of where you assume it's on. Even if you have "focus follows mouse" set in your window manager like I do. Infuriating!

+1 I can confirm this for myself as well, though, it doesn't happen with all notifications.

This is quite dangerous or at least very annoying. I've nearly typed my password(s) into Steam chat accidently because of this! :P

I have the exact same problem, it's quite annoying losing focus randomly while typing.

It's specially annoying when a friend messages you and you end up sending some half-written gibberish through, this issue should be definitely looked into
I can confirm this even when in-game. It may be related to my dual monitor setup, but every time a message pops up, my motion in TF2 hiccups as it steals focus.

(Running on OpenSuSE 12.2, KDE, am in beta)

Mint 13 + Cinnamon. Any Steam toaster notification steals focus from the active game or window.

Same here. Steam notifications steal focus. Makes it kinda hard to play a game in fullscreen.
