that was crash from Library click.
Calling Settings spawns a window and aborts on the same backtrace (not being able to draw anything on the window). Other threads are mostly in some kind of wait state, either WaitForEvent or pthread_cond_timedwait

After switching back to english in registry.vdf access to abovementioned sections restored.

ruff,
I'm looking into this particular problem and it's just not reproducing for me. I need to get a some more pieces of information from you:
1/ What version of Linux are you running?
2/ What is your system locale? (i.e. just run locale and paste in the output from that here)
3/ Can you also give me the md5sum of your steamclient.so file? (md5sum ~/.steam/bin/steamclient.so)

Thanks!

Bubba,
I've just reproduced it - set again to German, it asked to restart, restarted, I've clicked to the Library (Bibliothek) and bam!
Although after crash i started it again and it decided to update the client. But even after update behaviour is the same. Anyway here info below.
Thanks

P.S.
called g_object_unref() on an object that had only a floating
reference; the initial floating reference is not owned by anyone
and must be removed with g_object_ref_sink().

We had a bug with rendering accents on capital letters... We fixed this in the release we did last night. Can you update Steam and see if this still occurs?
ruff Nov 21, 2012 @ 10:32am 
Thanks guys, works perfectly well now. Let me roam through all windows, but I'm sure it gone once root cause fixed.
