Graphical artifacts/corruption in Steam client
Hi, since first version I beta client I installed I keep having weird graphical artifacts showing on screen instead of pop-ups, menus, mouseover previews and so on. Usually in place of a popup I get different part of a screen (sometimes other part of client, sometimes something from other application). Quite often, moving mouse causes the proper menu to show, but not always

Here are the samples:

Corrupted "library" menu:
Corrupted RMB popup:

Moreover, as of today's update, I get red box instead of a checkbox in various parts of the client:

Am afraid I can't help ya; don't know much about ATI drivers.

Not sure it is drivers related, but I probably should switch it out to nvidia board to test. Don't have any other ATI-related problems elsewhere.

I noticed the same problem with red boxes today.
Running Kubuntu 13.04 with a nouveau drivers.

Yes, I have this same red square

At first I thought this was an nvidia-driver issue, but all my games run fine and there are no defects as far as I'm aware. I think this is a Steam client issue because I've had the same driver with Steam which didn't have a red square as far as I'm concerned.

The red square issue seems to be gone, but other corruptions are still there.

Same thing here, running 3.12 with an amd radeon a10-6800k, open-source drivers.
