Issue Report: GUI not coming up after TF2 update.
I started TF2 from unity and it said it had to update, so I waited for that to finish. When it finished downloading and updating I decided instead to close that and try to open steam, however it will not come up. There is no icon in the unity launcher/sidebar, however there is a MainThrd running in the background (via top). After killing MainThrd steam happily starts up.
