[FIXED]: Issue Report: Steam segfault
Steam segfaults on Kubuntu/KDE(4.9.3) if you minimize Steam by clicking its name on the taskbar, restore it clicking it again and then, for example, click the 'show friends'-button on restored Steam window which results in opened Friends window and Steam uploading dump and segfaulting. Trying to open any menu also triggers the segfault, but does not trigger the dump upload.

Segfault was not triggered if Steam was minimized from its own window controls.

Remotely relevant part of the Steam output on Konsole:
ExecSteamURL: "steam://open/friends" Uploading dump (in-process) [proxy ''] /tmp/dumps/crash_20121201210249_1.dmp success = yes response: CrashID=bp-81fa302e-e70f-4677-b8ae-b68c62121201 /home/joni/Steam/steam.sh: rivi 325: 6842 Muistialueen ylitys (luotiin core-tiedosto) $DEBUGGER "$STEAMROOT/$PLATFORM/$STEAMEXE" "$@"
If triggered by menus, the dump messages are not there but just the segfault line.
(The last line says problem on line 325, segmentation fault, core dump created)

Sorry for the Finnish info, but it should be fairly clear what they say.

I have a similar issues when attempting to start Steam after the latest update. I'd just installed the latest AMD graphics driver beta (on Kubuntu 12.10 x64), and when I tried to start, I got this little beauty, that looks quite similar to the one above:

Following up on this, I went to the steam.sh file, to line 325, and found the line where it attempted to set up the debugger. I commented that line out, tried to start Steam, and it began running a file update. The file update replaced the *.sh file with a new version, tried to run it, segfaulted. I updated the *.sh file again, ran it, and it ran the same update again, segfaulting again. I'm now stuck in a loop. Damn!
Just ran it with gdb in hopes of a useful backtrace, but all I got was two addresses in fglrx_dri.so, which makes this look like a driver issue. I'm currently using the (k)ubuntu's fglrx-updates 2:9.000-0ubuntu3-package. I guess I'll be updating them soon-ish.
Once again fglrx is a disappointment.

Steam won't start with amd/ati 12.11beta8 drivers. Problem causes by drivers withing segmentation fault while steam tries to run ADL_ApplicationProfiles_System_Reload function
and it fails.

Found this information here. So nobody can run steam within catalyst 12.11beta8 drivers.

I can't offer much regarding AMD drivers but I can say that AMD is currently setting up a public forum for issues encountered with AMD drivers and the Steam fro Linux client. Once it's live, I will be announcing it to the Steam for Linux group.
Just updated to Catalyst 12.11 Beta 11 and the segfault doesn't happen anymore.

I'm on Catalyst 12.11 beta11 and I still see this segfault. gdb backtrace has nothing useful other than the crash occurred in fglrx_dri.so:

(gdb) where
#0 0xf68654f5 in ?? () from /usr/lib/dri/fglrx_dri.so
#1 0x088fbe60 in ?? ()
#2 0xf6272580 in ?? () from /usr/lib/dri/fglrx_dri.so
Backtrace stopped: previous frame inner to this frame (corrupt stack?)
