"Tooltip" summaries on this forum temporarily freeze the Linux Steam Client
When I browse this forum from Firefox, no problem.
When I browse this forum from the Linux Steam client, I have a problem.

Anytime I mouseover a thread title, a tooltip pops up that gives the first few lines of the thread. However, anytime this happens, the Linux Steam client momentarily freezes. I can't scroll, move the window, click on anyting else, get it to respond in any other way.
After a few moments, the tooltip disappears, everything becomes responsive, and usually it goes through all the previous actions I did with it.

I'm running Ubuntu 12.04, a Radeon HD 4800, an Intel® Core™2 Quad CPU Q6700 @ 2.66GHz × 4 , and a 32 bit system.

Edit: When the tooltip pops up, and the client freezes, I can switch to another program and still have the tooltip show in front of whatever program I opened in front of it.

Probably an issue with the integrated browser

Yep seems to be. In my typical browsers like Chromium or Firefox there's no issues, but the in-client browser has this problem.

Bit strange since it's just an integrated webkit based browser? But I guess something isn't quite working properly.
