Issue Report: Steam window missing when launched via game shortcut
When Steam is NOT running and a GAME is launched via Desktop icon (or "steam steam://rungameid/22000") then Steam is automatically launched.
The problem is that this Steam instance does not have a window to interact with.
Trying to run multiple instances is blocked by the startup script.
I found no way to get an Steam window other than killing "MainThrd" and starting a new instance.
The only way for a novice user to do that is a logout.....

kubuntu 12.10 x64 + radeon
