Issue Report: Steam crash while idle
I've had steam open and idle on my machine for a few days now, and I just noticed that it crashed at some point with the following output:

SteamUpdateUI: An X Error occurred X Error of failed request: BadWindow (invalid Window parameter) Major opcode of failed request: 40 (X_TranslateCoords) Resource id in failed request: 0x1a0ab40 Serial number of failed request: 56155576 terminate called after throwing an instance of 'std::bad_alloc' what(): std::bad_alloc Uploading dump (in-process) [proxy ''] /tmp/dumps/crash_20121211023836_1.dmp success = no error: No Error /bulk/no_arch/Steam_linux/steam.sh: line 325: 9036 Aborted (core dumped) $DEBUGGER "$STEAMROOT/$PLATFORM/$STEAMEXE" "$@"

I tried examining the referenced crash dump file, but it did not appear to exist.

Output from Help/System Information follows:
