Issue: TF2, FPS drops when using the ingame chat window
TF2 works very well. However, when I open the in-game chat window the fps drops to ~few/s. When I close the chat window, everything works perfectly again. I haven’t spot any other performance issues (yet?).

I was unable to repro this on my machine. Is this consistent?

Interesting, I can't reproduse this anymore, perhaps something changed in the previous updates... Last time I tried (roughly a week ago) the problem was always there (I tried rebooting etc), but now everything works.
