Issue Report: [solved] steam freezes when validating files or defragmenting them.
Every time I try to validate TF2 files or defragment them, steam freezes completely after doing some progress (60-80% usually).
Terminal output:
...

Recent Failure Reports:

I'm a bit confused that there are no failure reports mentioned. There are some in /tmp/dumps/. Were crash files really uploaded? Maybe I should do this manually somewhere?

P.S. Steam is installed on NTFS partition. I guess it's important in this case :)

Partition has high fragmentation (windows showed 25%). Ultradefrag (open source defragmentation tool) saved the day and steam validates files just couple of minutes now.
