Issue Report: segmentation faults on creation/closing of windows
on my machine steam produces segmentation faults which seem to be related to the creation of new windows.

Here is the end of the console output where I just started steam, briefly saw the "steam updates" (or whatever these advertisements are called) window above the main client window and then quit:
(steam:5260): Gtk-WARNING **: A floating object was finalized. This means that someone
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().
Generating new string page texture 77: 64x256, total string texture memory is 933.89 KB
/home/lars/Steam/steam.sh: line 113: 5260 Segmentation fault (core dumped) ${DEBUGGER} "${STEAMROOT}"/${PLATFORM}/${STEAMEXE} "$@"


And here is another example. Shortly after pressing the install button for TF2 I saw the installation dialogue for a second and then steam quit:
surface_opengl.cpp (564) : Assertion Failed: glIsTexture( id )
surface_opengl.cpp (845) : Assertion Failed: !"Current texture not set"
surface_opengl.cpp (505) : Assertion Failed: GetTextureForString failed

surface_opengl.cpp (564) : Assertion Failed: glIsTexture( id )
surface_opengl.cpp (845) : Assertion Failed: !"Current texture not set"
/home/lars/Steam/steam.sh: line 255: 5403 Segmentation fault (core dumped) $DEBUGGER "$STEAMROOT/$PLATFORM/$STEAMEXE" "$@"

The next try in installing was successful, but the client quit when it tried to return to the library window while downloading.

However these surface_opengl.ccp failures seem to be produced all the time when the client is running.
